It is a small science musem about the history, exploring, and aminals of the sea. I thought the displays and facilities were relatively nice comparing to size of the museum. There were lots of kids from local schools to have a class there with their...More

Pleasant marine museum in a modern building in Malaga port area. Small fish/octopus tanks on one floor, marine artifacts, overpriced for what they offer. Great for kids, interactive. As adults, we'd skip it.

The Museo Alborania is an enjoyable museum because its focus is the nearby sea called the Mar de Alboran. The museum stesses conservation of the natural resources of the sea. I enjoy seeing the collection of sea shells and the museum store is very good.

You know they were advertising 'Blackfish' when they have turtles swimming about in a puddle. It's really not on. Their advertising is terrible and half the time i walked past it seemed closed. Set those turtles free!!!
