  • Have been on tours with the group. I would like to consider all closely and listen to something interesting. But the tour guide, and most of the tourists were probably has other plans. In short come all muddled and jogging. Museum of old, in my 1923. built and without claim to grandeur, but the view is that. Many live exhibits in pools and aquariums, even more on the shelves are placed in formalin. Think lazy private excursion, I would have liked more.

  • Well maintained. They have posted informative signs on each of the fish tanks in Vietnamese, English and Russian.
  • A lot of Ocean stuffs to see and learn for every people. Entrance fee is very cheap compare to other countries ocean museum.
  • Worth to come, see sea creatures closely
  • Went there on a bus alone. Child 5 years went free, and with adults-Lee 25 whether 30 thousand vnd. The child satisfied. This is not Dubai or Spain. But for a child who has never seen so many animals was very interesting, still remembers. In the pool were colored fishes, as well sharks and large turtles. Within the same lot of small aquariums with fish. Those who have been in steep gardens do not advise to be disappointed. It is primarily a museum rather than a giant Aquarium, as in other countries

  • There is something to see. I liked the show, where a few aquariums are presented a curious fish and it is given from a description of their features. Large halls with preserved, dried, etc. Marine zhivotinami-on the fan.
