The ticket is RMB 120 per adult as per August 2014. Kids under 1.2 meters are free, otherwise the ticket will be cheaper. They have a fantastic collection of fish! Some of them are amazingly huge! The building is clean, not sure about the restrooms. I didn't dare to go. Avoid going in Summer, where there are lots of local... More

The aquarium is inside the Zoo grounds. It's really good inside but pricey compared to all the other Beijing attractions. There's some nice exhibits inside so it's worth a visit.

Beijing Aquarium was a great visit! Lots of things to see, but we especially enjoyed the Beluga Whales.

The aquarium also had a lot of great marine life, although we... More

My children love to see the marine life. Big aquarium with beautiful garden and compound. Easy to get there and a walking distance from the Beijing Zoo.

We did not know that the aquarium was part of the zoo and were very excited it was! This was the highlight of our day visiting the aquarium. The exhibits are great and they have a great dolphin show. The fish were plentiful to look at and we had a great time.

Subway ticket cost rmb2 one way. Try not to visit the zoo during summer as it's scorching hot and most of the animals are hidden,... More
