Here is the run down this place needs some supervision there were people sitting in front of the exhibits eating there food they brought into the location and made it very unpleasant impossible to enjoy the fish exhibits. I don't recommend this place by any means

Upon arrival at the ticket booth we were VERY turned off by the admission price!!!...160RMB per person!!! We sadly turned around. We visit the local zoo and the local aquarium everywhere we go from Santiago de Chile, to Houston, to Sao Paulo, to Vancouver......but we are not $tupid.

After visiting the museum, I had thought the aquarium would be tiny as well, but to my surprise it was a very nice place to visit. I am glad that i visited as the place had tons of rare species to explore. Great place to take kids as well.
