Beijing Aquarium (Beijing Haiyangguan), Beijing

4.0
#2 of 7 in Zoos & Aquariums in Beijing
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Head deep underwater without all the inconvenience of getting wet at Beijing Aquarium (Beijing Haiyangguan), an aquarium located within a larger zoo. Shaped like a giant conch shell, the building houses separate ecosystems, each with a wide variety of animal and plant life to admire and learn about. Head to the Amazon area to see monkfish, piranhas, and glass catfish, then go down to the touchable seashore area, where the tides ebb and flow, revealing rock pools of sea urchins, starfish, and hermit crabs. The shark zone presents a particularly daring challenge for youngsters, with a tunnel immersing you entirely in shark-filled waters.

  • Through the Beijing zoo to access has this aquarium .the beginning of the visit is very friendly, but quickly, you get in a very commercial area filled with shop, despite a very nice aquarium with whales and another with the sharks. The show n is not extraordinary either. The children used the l aquarium have judges no! On the other hand, we have paid 85 yuan for an activity that has enchanted our youngest. He was in front of a giant screen and he had the illusion d be with dinosaurs and large mammals. We're back with a photo souvenir. C is almost his favourite Beijing.

  • A very large aquarium with many animals and fish to see. The bulugas were very cute with the loud calls that they kept making. There is a dolphin show that you will want to see. The collection of fish from all around the world is pretty amazing. Also at the gift shop you are able to buy mini live jellyfish in a jar for only 10 rmb.
  • Please STOP TO BUY OCRAS AND DOLPHINS from # TAIJI JAPAN for your cruel slavery-business.EMTY the tanks, set them FREE ! They don't want to stay their lifes in prisons doing stupid clown tricks for human amusement. Aquariums, zoos and marine parks alike who keep once wild animals, all play a part in the horrific, six-monthly dolphin hunt that occurs in Taiji ... Say no to marine park tickets. Animals behind glass didn't wilfully give up their free lives." SHAME ON YOU !
  • The aquarium in itself is simply amazing, and if you factor in the dolphin show (which we "accidentally" discovered thanks to the helpful staff who pointed us to the auditorium), it is an awesome experience!
  • This is a pretty nice aquarium and a good place to bring the kids.
  • Too noisy.
