About Oman Aquarium
Come aboard on a journey to discover the wonders of the sea!
Oman Aquarium, Oman’s first indoor aquarium, takes you on a fascinating tour of marine life and other nautical wonders. Located at the ground and first floor of Mall of Muscat, the aquarium spans a whopping 8,000 square meter space. Feel as though you’ve been transported straight to the ocean as you walk through our underwater tunnel, and observe the creatures through our 9m x 7m viewing panel.
The tank is filled with water collected 50m offshore from Seeb and cleaned 24 hours a day.
Based on the adventures of the famous 15th Century Arabic explorer Ahmed Bin Majid, the aquarium features aquatic creatures he encountered during his travels. Displaying over 200 species and 30,000 colourful marine animals, the collection includes popular attractions such as three species of sharks, and penguins!
Oman Aquarium also takes pride in its effort to conserve marine life by nursing injured sea turtles back to health at our facility, before releasing them back into the sea.
Viewing is just the start, the aquarium offers exciting activities for you and your family to partake in, such as interacting with penguins, back of the house tours, diving, fish feeding, educational workshops, science classes, arts & crafts activities themed around marine life, animal adoption, and more.
Oman Aquarium also works closely with schools and provides young sailor’s workshop to promote awareness about the local habitat. Join us on a maritime adventure that’s fun for the whole family and designed to inspire and educate the next generation to love and conserve aquatic creatures.
