  • We went to the museum because the weather was really bad and we couldn't do much on or in the water. They have a nice collection of fish, but some of them (esp. the seals and turtles) live in tiny cag...  more »
  • There are too much info to learn at the same time and you can see these species in many other museums around the world . However we spot some good view there to take pictures. Quite stunning! 
  • This museum is located by the harbour. Here you can see hundreds of different fish in small aquariums. Major is also available such as sharks, skates and rays & sea turtles. The most worth seeing was probably an 18 m long whale skeleton. The skeleton was found by a bunch of peasants who were digging a channel. The skeleton was recovered 1.2 m and 4 km from the sea. The importance of this election is estimated to about 10 tons.

  • 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.
