Malta National Aquarium – New Build Project

This large aquarium – a new build project and the first of its kind in Malta – is in a popular location and showcases a large number of attractive elements. Fish from around the world are featured, including a large ocean display with walk-through tunnel and sharks.

It was an incredible project – The site was essentially a large blank canvas when we arrived. Our job was to transform it from a building site into an underwater wonderland. There were a total of 26 tanks therein, all required theming, painting and glazing. If that wasn’t enough we also had a mammoth amount of external dry-side theming and muraling to get on with, plus a submarine to build – Needless to say we had our work cut out! From the first 3D walk-through to the final lick of paint, Nautilus oversaw the successful completion of this project and it looks fantastic.

What we did:

  • Supplied full theming design package, including CGI ‘Walkthrough’
  • Created, supplied and installed all of the in-tank theming
  • Created, supplied and installed all exhibition dry-side theming
  • All of the mural artwork
  • All of the tank glazing
  • Themed the outdoor areas, including Café Del Mar
  • Themed the restaurant
