Bring your Kid to The Aquaria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur

The Aquaria KLCC is an underwater park located beneath Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre within Kuala Lumpur City Centre. It is a must see for most kids when visiting Kuala Lumpur and can be easily combined with your visit to the KLCC Twin Towers.

Featuring 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2) in two levels with a 90-metre (300 ft) underwater tunnel, Aquaria KLCC houses over 250 different species and over 20,000 land and aquatic animals from Malaysia and around the world. Interactive information kiosks on fish and turtle conservation. It includes a themed retail area of about 5,000 square feet (460 m2).

Aquaria KLCC is based on the journey of water from the land to the sea. The journey starts in the misty highlands, down through rivers, through the rain forest and mangroves to the coral reefs into the deep blue sea.

The Aquaria is an educational trip for family with young children. The area of showcase is not huge; it takes about one to two hours to complete the walk through with plenty of time for young one to explore the place.

The center piece is a huge tank, the Living Ocean, which presents many types of small and large species. A tunnel tank with a moving travelator where you can marvel at Sand Tiger sharks, stingrays, marine turtles and others. You can see those creatures "flying" above you. Although there's a travelator, walking at the side walkway is better. 

Visitors are treated to various feeding events at specific times for different species. There is a touch pool that kids will love it. Kids would be thrilled that they could hold a star fish, a baby shark, seas cucumber, as well as horseshoe crab in their palms at touch pool and it was definitely a great experience for them.
