Book Your Tickets Early
The first thing you need to do before visiting is to book the spot online. A visit can take approximately 2 hours, so it is best to clear up your schedule for 2-3 hours for a better experience.

You can reach the aquarium in 20 minutes from your stay at Oaks Liwa Executive Suites, which is one of the most convenient serviced apartments in Abu Dhabi.
You will find many ticket options starting from Dhs105 per person, and the most popular options are the aquarium journey, animal encounter, or the all-access pass. The aquarium journey costs Dhs105 per person, animal encounter costs Dhs180, and all-access costs Dhs180. You can also combine other activities with the tour such as a boat ride in a glass-bottom dhow boat.
The National Aquarium opens its doors at 10 am and will close to the public at 10 pm. Many activities will require a bit of time, which is why it is important to reserve a few hours of your day to enjoy the full experience.
