Don’t come if you’re expecting a western style, well developed aquarium or you’ll be disappointed. In saying that, we came around 9-9.30 coinciding with the time the fish were being fed in the tanks, highly reccomend visiting at that time. There’s no dedicated shows so...More
They have a exhibit of various sea creatures and extinct remains. They have a turtle reserve and you can spend hours looking at them. The directions are clearly marked and help you to move from one exhibit to other.
A nothing to shout about Museum. You may want to give it a pass unless you are into the sea creatures that you can see at any aquarium. The displays is a little scarce for it's title - National Oceanographic Museum, I am sorry to...More
Saddest experience, many of the sharks do not move they just lie on the bottom of their small dirty pool, seems very depressing. The turtles looked depressed and sad in their tiny dirty enclosure, but the worst is the seal, in a tiny glass cage...More
I don't like zoos/aquariums in general but I wanted to see some ocean creatures from this side of the world and this place is absolutely the worst. They had tiny tanks with far too many fish in one (11 lion fish in 1 tank is...More
They have a wide variety of ocean animals and fish on display. Although the fish tanks appeared fairly clean, many of the larger fish and animals were living in terrible conditions. The saddest part was probably the sea turtles and the manatee they have, they...More

my comment wasn't in any way meant against Vietnam. It was a reaction to my experience and the comments about the museum here that say how great it is. And as I said,the exposition is really interesting but the living conditions of the animals are very bad.
I never go to aquariums (or circus,very exceptionaly to zoos and I am vegetarian,if this really need to be personal) and I went to this place as to a museum and oceanographic institute with preservation programs. If the seal was safed from a fishing net,it is really great, but then it should get proper living condition. I prefer my kids not to see the animals alive then to see them suffering.
It is just my opinion. There is to much cruelty in the world towards animals, in Vietnam or in my country, it doesn't mather. I live Vietnam and there is no reason to take my comment personaly.
