Great ideas and well set up but nothing too mind blowing. We got a discount ticket as part of the hop on hop off tickets we purchased so 'hopped off' and went through, no way would I pay the entry price other wise. If you haven't seen many aquariums - its lovely but at the end of the day -... More

If you are not staying at Atlantis, then you can reach the aquarium using the monorail which connects with the Dubai tram.

We visited this place as we had booked the Dolphin Experience and so entrance to this was free. We were pretty amazed at the collection of fishes displayed. Our young son had an absolute ball. I would recommended visiting it if you are travelling with children.

It may be that to give a fair evaluation of the Lost Chambers Aquarium one would have to stay at the Atlantis hotel. The aquarium appears to be designed to be a part of the total Atlantis-experience. Hence, visited on its own it becomes "just an aquarium".

The lost chambers has remained the same over the years and there is hardly anything done to make it more attractive...Also the price that is charged is very high compared what one could get to see there...I would rate the Dubai Mall Aquarium much high compared to this... No Value for Money!!!

We visited while staying at Atlantis. 4yr old was memorised and adult kid loved the snorkel experience in the ambassador lagoon. Laurence took great care of us while my husband snorkeled and showed great care for our children. She has wonderful customer service and is very well informed. Thank for a great time.
