Learnt some knowledge from the visit. 3D movie is the must-do thing, don't skip it! You may need 3-4 hours to finish the all halls.

Much to see, impressively designed. You need at least 3-4 hours to visit all parts (fish tank, penguins, sea birds, sea mammals). The 3-D movie, explaining the evolution of sea creatures was fun. Definitely worth the money (a a great option for a rainy day). The only bad thing: some of the fish and sea mammals appear to be locked... More

Large aquarium. Comparable to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. Many things to see and do. My 13 year old had a great time. Make sure you do the 3D movie! Yes, you are allowed to wade and play in the wading pools around the aquarium.

The museum was rubbish and a waste of time. Only good thing was the aquarium tube and the pools outside.

I liked the place, you can see a lot of interesting stuff there. There are two swimming pools on the museum territory so if it's too hot - you can refresh yourself)

A very good portrayal of what the waters of Taiwan and its seas offer. Clean and very well presented. Truly enjoyed the shipwreck theme as did the kids.

This was a very nice aquarium that was not to big. We were able to see all the aquarium in about 3 hours, which allowed us to see more of Taiwan. I would recommend this aquarium.

I missed them the first time I went, I did not allow enough time. You should allow for a day trip just so you are not rushed and can see everything. The fish tanks are amazing, walking under the sharks as them swim above you is very neat. And you can not beat the Penguins.

I stayed at Nanwan Resort and this museum is quite out of way. After making a long journey to the museum, honestly I was disappointed by the overall offering

We have visited aquariums all over the world and this rates highly. Perhaps not so many of the small or colourful fish, but excellent presentations
