We and our kids loved the aquarium and the many extras you can do there. Minor issue - the food onsite is poor just about everywhere so if you are able, bring some with you.

The only one I've ever been to, their collection is very good. The place is rammed with schoolkids, of course. The canteen we used (I think there's more than one) was pretty crappy. Their menu didn't match their photos, and the food itself was pretty poor (a shame, because Taiwan's food is usually awesome)

It was raining when we reach there and its perfect it is located indoor. Nice place and worth visiting. Not new but still quite well maintained. The fish were healthy (I dont know how unhealthy fish looks like lol). The tank were huge and some were titled with shop wreakage looks alike.

Hard to get there by public transport from Kaohsiung city center as there are only local public buses that go there on scheduled time. So we had to negotiate with one taxi driver to get us there. Albeit we managed to negotiate well, it was still very expensive to get there!! But the museum was more than worth visiting. A... More

That Aquarium was the best ever where i have visited. Nice underwater tube area. Just a lot of young scool children in same time, and lot of screeming.

This aquarium deserves more tourists. While I forgot the price, it was really big and was equivalent to SEA in Singapore (OK, to be honest maybe the latter was a bit bigger). I liked the number of massive sized animals and the variety of animals in there, and the tanks seemed decently big (I don't know how the animals are... More

We did not expect much coming here and ended up spending a full day. It is one of the most interesting water museums we have seen, and we have seen a few as our son loves fishes. Very intersting presentation, even if you are not too much into the water world like me you will be glued to the glass... More

Having visited some of the best Aquariums in the US, the National Aquarium ranks near the very top. It's not 1, but 3 complexes, each with amazing exhibits. We liked it so much that we ended up visiting a second day during the trip. You can tell, however, that the plan was to make this a destination place, with several... More
