Started back in the year 2003, this museum is one of a kind in Labuan. There's a display aquarium to display fishes from different habitat, a touch pool and also a maritime based display on the first floor that shows some unique deep water species and also some fishing equipment. It also has the skeleton of a whale which happens to be the main attraction in the museum,

Great for first timers!

The Labuan Marine Museum is one of the attractions that awaits us at Labuan International Sea Sport Complex. Like it's name suggest, the museum houses a modest amount of marine life, shipwreck replica and also some models of fishes that can be found in the South China Sea surrounding this little island.

As much as it is an attraction, I still think that the museum is only worth visiting once or twice as it gets very boring after the first visit. There's a touch pool at the entrance that contains a mini shark and some other bottom feeder species of fish. Don't expect to find something big though, because I bet that you're gonna be disappointed if you do. The display in the museum isn't that great as well. There's a few species of fishes, electric eels and some other species of marine life. However, the displays have not been updated in a while.

Now, moving on to the second floor. The main attraction here is the skeleton of a whale.However, based on the information provided there, the skeleton is not completely genuine and some parts are actually man made. The second floor also houses some other marine based displays such as diving and fishing equipment.

All in all, it's not worth the second visit.
