The Israel Aquarium is a unique center that presents the aquatic habitats of Israel, focusing on conservation, research, education, and raising public awareness of the conservation of the sea and its beaches.

Come visit Israel‘s first aquarium!

A visit to the aquarium includes a passage through Israel’s four seas – the Mediterranean, The Sea of Galilee, the Dead Sea, and the Red Sea.

On your visit, you will encounter approximately 200 species of creatures that live in the sea at the various spectacular exhibits. You will be able to see up close the famous clownfish, boxfish, groupers, eels, seahorses, soft corals, various jellyfish, sharks, and many others.

At the center of the aquarium is an open ray pool, in which swim various types of stingrays. The highlight of the visit comes as you pass through a tunnel that simulates an under-sea visit, with fish and sharks swimming overhead.

New at the Aquarium! The Biodiversity Exhibit and Butterfly House

Enter a tropical forest, where fifteen species of butterflies fly freely, many of them never before seen in Israel. Discover the fascinating world of small creatures, from stick bugs, beehives, and beetles, to cockroaches from Madagascar, and more. 

This exclusive exhibit is located at the Israel Aquarium campus. A visit to the exhibit is included with admission to the Aquarium.

    great place. In the past there were more tutorials at the aquarium complex. The butterfly enclosure is nice but there weren't too many butterflies and explanations.
