Set up back in 2003, the Labuan Marine Museum was build with the idea of preserving the precious marine heritage of Labuan. Conceptualized after a ship, visitors enter the museum through a metal bridge and are exposed to myriad aquariums displaying all kinds of marine life including variety of fishes, mollusks, crustacean and corals. There are two galleries in the museum: the first downstairs has various sizes of aquariums displaying an assortment of marine life from the mangrove swamp to the deep sea, as well as featured information on the four famous shipwrecks at the Labuan water – Australian Wreck, American Wreck, Cemnet Wreck and Blue Water Wreck; upstairs feature 17 sections of graphic-panel exhibits, models and replicas of the Labuan Marine Life, coral reef inhabitants, as well as other sea creatures found in the vast ocean, such as sharks, stingrays, sea turtles so on and so forth.
There is also the replica skeleton of an Indian Fin Whale, which washed up to the shores of Melaka in 1892. The display was first placed at the Singapore National Museum, before it was sent to the National Museum in Kuala Lumpur in 1972. Apart from that, one can also touch and feel starfishes, sea cucumbers and king crabs.
