Located close to sea shore. Interesting, but old looking very not very attractive due to its' poor maintenance.

“Outdated in attitude and displays”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is a very old musuem and is not worth even the 30,000 vnd to get in. iSome of the tanks are very dirty and you cannot see into them very well. There were people smoking all around the musuem and the tanks were way too small for some of the fish and especially the sharks in the outside tanks. No one was bothered about flash photography and tapping on the tanks. If you like aquariums go to the underwater world at Vinpearl instead.

“Upsetting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Maybe you should go as at least the entrance fee might help these poor creatures kept in poor conditions. I don't know about the fish, but the turtle and seal enclosure were incredibly depressing. They should be reported for the bathroom sized room they keep the seals in, very upsetting.

“Quick visit only”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

A small aquarium with not too many species but the local tour guide gave us an interesting lecture re the importance of all the different fish to the local economy. There is a sad and very upsetting display with 2 seals housed in a terrible cage like thing with very little water for them to so be warned.

“Good activity for a rainy day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

My partner actually enjoyed this trip more than I did....it is a good trip for a rainy day. The displays in the museum are interesting but the one thing I was not keen on was the tiny enclosure for the seals and turtles.
