UMS Marine Aquarium and Museum is a tourist attraction at University Malaysia Sabah, located 6km north of KK City along the coast at Likas
. This relatively small but informative marine aquarium is managed by Borneo Marine Research Institute, housing a collection of live corals, fish, turtles and other sea creatures in large display tanks. A gallery displays preserved specimens of coral, shells and even the skeleton of a Cuvier’s Beaked Whale. The aquarium also has a replica of the Sipadan wall diving exprience, nestled in an overhead diorama after the entrance. At the bottom of the hill off the museum, visitors will past a hatchery and reach a secluded but rocky beach.
