Oman’s new Aquarium is Going to be the Biggest in the Middle East!

Everyone knows by now Oman is set to get a brand new aquarium, in a brand new shopping centre, Palm Mall. The mall is expected to be complete by next year, and will have multiple restaurants, the aquarium and a snow park!

It’s going to be huge, so huge in fact, it’s going to span across 3 floors, covering 8,000sqm of the entire mall making it the largest aquarium in the Middle East! 30,000 marine animals will call the enormous tank home and is expected to be the biggest man-made attraction in Oman.

The main tank will have a demi-tunnel running through it, allowing visitors an up-close and personal look at the animals inside.
