Go On An Aquatic Adventure

There’s something mesmerising about water that immediately piques a child’s curiosity. Cultivate their aquatic interest with a trip to Aquaria KLCC!

By The Weekly | August 30, 2017

Aquaria KLCC is a world-class oceanarium in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Home to more than 5,000 aquatic and land-bound creatures, this 60,000 square-foot space is the perfect spot for kids to learn more about water and its inhabitants.

Discover an underwater world!
Some fascinating underwater specimens you’ll come across are red-bellied piranhas, giant blotched fantail rays, otters, rare sand-tiger sharks, 10-foot-long arapaimas, green sea turtles, and tawny nurse sharks.

 

 

Pat a fish! 
Ever wonder what touching a sea cucumber feels like? At the Gene Pool, you’ll be able to find out. This touch pool contains chocolate chip star fishes, black sea cucumbers, brownbanded bamboo sharks, horseshoe crabs, and similar mysterious animals with unique features that you can reach in and touch gently.

 

 

Learn how we can save the ocean!
Sadly, it was published in Science magazine that the world’s oceans will be devoid of fishes in under four decades thanks to overfishing, climate change, habitat loss, and pollution! Aquaria KLCC actively strives to help educate people about ocean conservation through active participation in projects such as Save Our Fins (Shark Conservation), Saving Our Turtles, and Blue Ocean, Green Action.

In addition, both children and adults can have fun dissecting a frog virtually at the Eco Lab – one of four exciting and informative labs at the oceanarium! Children aged 6 to 13 can sign up for an overnight camp where they get to learn about the unique diets of arapaimas, sharks, and red-bellied piranhas as well as feed them, make new friends, and go on a nocturnal walk and discovery hunt (to find out what the fishes get up to at night) before lights out.
