Oceanarium – Aquarium

This aquarium is one of the best kids activities in Moscow in winter. What we love about this aquarium is that it's easy accessible, behind Crocus city. And the Oceanarium aquarium is not too big and even contains a small zoo, which makes it a perfect activity with younger kids.
Oceanarium has 3 themes:
- Oceans: with salt water animals
- Rivers & lakes: with sweet water animals
- Jungle: with plants and small jungle creatures.
You can buy separate tickets or total access passes. We recommend the latter, because although the Jungle room is not very interesting, this is compensated by the quite attractive and creatively done salt & sweet water areas.
The spaces of the fishes are nicely done, however like in many zoo's, the land animals don't live in optimal conditions. There are no big animal shows (like in Moskvarium), but this is a very attractive aquarium with nice arctic landscapes and glass shark tunnels.
Location: Crocus City Mall
Metro: Myakinino
