Aquaworld Aquarium is a natural history museum in Hersonissos, Heraklion, Crete, Greece. Founded in 1995, Aquaworld was founded and developed by Scotsman John Bryce McLaren.[1] The majority of the animals on display are either rescued or were unwanted pets which now have a home in this environment.[2]

Aquaworld encourages interest in the rescued creatures within their recreated natural habitat and is open daily from 1 April until 31 October each year. It is one of only three aquariums in Greece.[1]
