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

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
