How to get to Aquaria KLCC?
You can get to Aquaria KLCC via:-
- Public Transport (Taxi/Grab)
- KL Hop-On Hop-Off Bus (Check out our KL HOHO experience here!)
- Train (LRT)
We’ve decided to play tourist in our city. So instead of the usual driving, we took the LRT train that connects all the way to KLCC (Get to save on parking as well, because parking in KLCC is notoriously known for its expensive rates). Once we reach the Petronas Twin Towers, there is a short walk (underground or across the park) to Aquaria KLCC, which is right beneath the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center.
– EXPLORE BEAUTIFUL SEA CREATURES
AT THE SHIPWRECK EXHIBIT –
Our Experience at Aquaria KLCC
As soon as we entered we were at the zone called the gene pool, where we were able to touch the freshwater creatures swimming in the shallow pools. This is definitely a highlight for both adults and kids as we get to interact with spotted stingrays, Brown banded bamboo sharks, Horseshoe Crab and some really cute starfishes!
We were also in time to witness the Feeding Session at the Touch Pool!
The next area we entered was this well-decorated shipwreck area which features deep-sea creatures like the fire shrimp, spotted garden eel, and the majestic lionfish.
The Stream Area
We’ve completed the top floor and head to the lower ground, that’s where we get to find larger fishes and even sharks at the Stream Area!
Our favourite section has to be the 90-meter long underwater walkway Tunnel! It felt like we’ve just dived underwater and went to a whole new world, featuring an ecosystem of the deepwater marine life, where sharks, stingrays and fishes were swimming around us, it was an incredible experience!

There is also a feeding sessions within Aquaria KLCC. I’d say come for the feeding time especially the one that they feed the sharks.
It was so surreal to be surrounded by so many sharks and marine life around us. There is just so much to explore.
You should just take your time slowly enjoy the sights bring your camera. If you go really really slow two to three hours would be just nice you get to see all the sea creatures.
We totally enjoyed our time here at the Aquaria KLCC. Highly recommend checking out this place if you’re looking for things to do in Kuala Lumpur!
