It can be crowded, but good visit if you have kids in particular. Otherwise, its average relative to other underwater aquariums.

It is worth the entrance fee alone to stand on the moving walkway and travel through the underwater tunnel. There really is a lot to see here. I know many of the preserved specimens are a bit of an old fashioned way of displaying zoological information but the sheer scale of the exhibits are impressive. The signs are more often... More

Let's be honest here, when you are visiting China you are visiting a country that is still new in the entertainment industry, the way they manage parks in China is completely different than in the U.S , due to the fact that we have a bunch of regulations that protect animals, do not come with the idea that you are...

Very patchy this place. Some exhibits are interesting others are in poor condition which was funny at first but got old quickly. The marine tunnel is excellent but some of the habitats for the larger sea mammals and marine life are not nice to see.

They have a good selection of fish but, as is common here, the tanks are often on the small side (especially for the mammals) and they love their garish lighting. The whole... More

I have been to both aquariums in Qingdao. This is the best. There is a great range of aquatic life and I particularly enjoyed the jellyfish tanks. We took two children with us aged 4 and 10. Their attention was maintained for the three hours we were there and they always had questions base don the exhibits. Very little of... More

This is well worth a visit for the variety of fish life and the skeleton of a huge whale stranded locally. It will take several hours to visit as it is huge. Live whales, penguins, fish, jellyfish, coral...

the aquarium is a good option in qingdao. the fun starts with a museum of natural history before going to the aquarium. the sea water part is very nice with plenty of sharks, rays and big turtles around, as a comparison the sea salt water part looks larger than the one in Barcelona. very good way to spend few hours...
