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

With not much going on in Kenting, I expected this to be a small aquarium similar to the one in Phuket. Not so! This is massive and awesome. Plan to spend at least 3-4 hours. Excellent exhibits and so many big fish. They even have a Starbucks! Not much info in English, but no biggie.

The aquarium near the southern end of Taiwan is a must visit for us when we're in the area. Even though we've been there numerous times, it never disappoints. The 450 NT price per adult (equal to about US $15. at this writing) is money well spent. Fantastic viewing of an enormous variety of marine life - including fresh water... More
