  • 對我來說是很矛盾的地方,但教育跟環保一體兩面,要如何雙贏是海生館一直需要學習的課題。但這此之外,我仍然很喜歡這裡,值得帶小孩去的地方。  more »
  • 夏天去是一避暑的好地方,裏面泠氣好舒服,帶小朋友去真的可以觀看只有在書本上看的到的海洋生態,真的是呈現在眼前,若喜歡可以辦年卡,一年要去幾次都可以,夜宿海生館是一個讓你畢生難忘的一晚,真的值得一去再去.  more »

  • A good option for a day while visiting Kenting. Well designed and informative exhibits, with 3 main areas. Waters of Taiwan, Coral Kingdom, and Waters of the world. Parents with kids will love the discovery zone interactive area where they can keep busy with educational hands on activities, not really for others without kids. The underwater tunnel is quite impressive, and the sunken ship is very creative. I don't know how to feel a out the beluga whales, although it is cool to see them up close, large intelligent creatures like these probably should be in the ocean. They seem healthy and well taken care of however. We came here on when the weather wasn't good, a good choice for non-beach weather days.
  • Great place to visit. We were disappointed of Kenting so we turn our scooter and had a ride here. Bright decision especially if you happen to have a bad weather. You can kill all day here and don't get bored. Huge aquariums, great variety of marine life. The penguins are the best. A little bit disappointed they don't have a whale shark here anymore. That guy was too big for the biggest fish tang already.
  • This place is great. The displays are quality, the people helpful and kids can find a lot to do. My 2 year old daughter can easily entertain herself for a morning. Bring something to get wet in because the water play area is a blast as well. The prices aren't bad either.
  • Good family day out when weather is poor in the area. Large and well-resourced aquarium. Some good exhibits, including the regional tanks. Penguins here appear to be treated better than many other places, but it is sad to see the seals and beluga whales. Display labels are concise and clear, with some messages of sustainability and conservation. There is a good thread of evolution and adaptation running through the exhibits, including some 3D 'prehistoric oceans' virtual tanks. Plenty of food provisions and great for kids of all ages. As a marine biologist and educator, I'd like to know more about the real research the attached university is doing. We took the '101' bus to and from the park.
  • I spent my lunar new year holiday in Pingtung. My friend suggest me to visit this place. New experience for me. I think everyone must visit here.
