    A participant views the marine and natural history Museum welcomes 賞 Zheng He gekijou theater. Entrance door instead thought that bian on the right side of door. Aquaria 擠 forced, relationship with a lot of people really is! Water is mixed 濁, without too many beautiful marine fish port. The most love is a devil fish, is the most beautiful jellyfish. Original not to leave marine natural history museum in the future, not a Zheng He vicinity of Opera Bastille. Very disappointed!

    It is a great place to put in as one of your stop during a visit to Sentosa Island. Has some interesting display but very little in terms of actual artifacts. As part of the Sentosa Island itinerary best reserve for the midday heat.

    Overall a nice aquarium, we went in because it was ranging and were pleasantly surprised. There was a range of different displays which are all well looked after. The dolphin pool was rather disappointing as they looked very lonely :-(

    The artefacts on display were very limited. and most of them are from the makau shipwreck. I hope the the collection expands
