  • Visited the aquarium in December in the weekday. There were very few visitors could be all calm to examine and photograph. Liked the penguins and jellyfish. Price, in my opinion, a bit overpriced.

  • 夫妻两人带娃一起去。因为离家比较近,相比价格,成人单次160,年票388,就办了两个人的年票,娃还小不用买票。这样性价比蛮高的,可以经常带娃去逛逛。里面水生物蛮多的,不足的是没有直达电梯,像我们带着推车的小娃娃就没有办法,只能坐扶梯上去。还是觉得有安全隐患的。 
  • We went almost as a fallback, instead was a surprise. Very nice species EC can be observed and the feeling of the tunnels so you can see the fish immersed in their environment. Very interesting

  • Generally there are shows on each day, maybe because i went on a weekday entrancr told no shows that day.. nice aquarium with glass tunnel ect.... ticket is around 120 per person..
  • I was a different experience. I didn't have it in the plan, but we decided to go get in. I like you go through tunnels surrounding by the fishes and different sea animals, even I must say it made me a little bit nervous. I enjoyed it pretty much. It has two floors and the negative part is once you get the stairs down... there is no way back, so you better look at the whole floor before you go downstairs.
  • Definitely not the best place to visit around here. There is no plenty of variety and there is plenty of other things to see around other than this.
  • I loved this place because it looks like natural environment.
  • We were there at a time without to many other tourists. A lot of different fish and sea animals, and it seemed clean for the animals. Worth a visit.
