So, I LOVE aquariums. And being from California, we have some of the best in the world. This one is just really awesome. Don't expect too many big marine mammals, but this place does a wonderful job of making their place interesting, inviting, engaging, and informative.

We stayed for more than half a day at the museum. Lots of fun and information for the kids. Most interesting is to watch the white whales playing in the water. Strongly recommended for family going with kids.

We bring along 2 small kids to visit its aquarium for about 3 hours. They have a good collection of marine lives, both fresh and salt waters. It has 3 major exhibition halls - Water of Taiwan, Coral Kingdom and Waters of the World. Try to allocate your time nicely if you have limited time. Entrance fee NT450, Student NT250,... More

The museum is so large and there are numerous types of animals. The dorcation is beautiful and the most famous part is white whale. You can take the shuttle bus in 恒春 to get there.
