The Melbourne Aquarium was a good family experience but feels like something is missing while the shark exhibit is closed.

Took our toddler to the Melbourne Aquarium for the day and he had a great time seeing all of the sea life. Some of the light projections were great too. Unfortunately, the shark exhibit was closed for upgrades, which was a noticeable missing attraction. Some of the access with a pram was limited and confusing. Overall was a fun experience.

We went there last week, it was busy at the restaurant but we had fun.

My children loved the place, especially they were so excited to touch the sea stars and watched the scuba divers. Also, there were screen activities children can access the activities at their levels. We liked 4D movie as well. We will definitely visit there again!

Good experience to see everything under one roof. This will be more fun for kids.

Good experience to see everything under one roof of Sea Life Aquarium, Melbourne. Kids will enjoy more when compared to adults. They have many interactive sessions which includes playing video games while watching the aquarium and painting rooms to relax and have fun.
