  • We decided to visit this little aquarium with my girlfriend, of course much less interesting than that of Vinperland that we had done the day before but with magnificent to see fish. We just wished the enclosure of the calves to sea which is just tiny with the equivalent of a bathtub to bathe. And the basin of the turtle we see just the top with a lot of reflection. Small advises plan the insect repellent I was devouring...

  • 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.
