The aquarium has a nice tunnel that you go through and see the sharks and manta rays swimming above you. The whole attraction can we seen in about an hour

Just OK
Jan 2016 • Family
I guess if you go with with children who doesn't need to pay entrance it will be just ok. Otherwise the water world will be very expensive for what you gone get. Too some water worlds or zoo's you can go many times an kids will still have fun but this one is just one visit worth. No reason to go there again.

Expensive entrance fee for a rundown facility. Though the mermaid experience is a treat
Dec 2015 • Family
It's a 1km walk (15min) from exit A of the Dongdaqiao metro station on line 6. Kids under 1 meter are free otherwise it's 120RMB for adults. The main attraction is the walk through tunnel of main aquarium tank. there's a conveyor belt that moves you along a good pace or you can jump to the side on the stationary walking path to go at your own pace. At a certain time, there's a mermaid show that's engaging. The kids will love this. Otherwise, the place has a rundown feel. Displays need lighting and refreshed signs. most of the walking areas dimly lit

Very confused
Jan 2016 • Family
Tunnel was cool, but all another terrible. Staff doesn't knows simple English, we just asked about where are another pavilions. But they don't understand us.
Some local people helps us.
Bad air conditioning system. Very hot.
Price is very high, we paid 120 for adults and 80 for children. But from 4 pavilions worked only 1.

Not much to see...
Dec 2015 • Family
This aquarium is pretty small but the tunnel is cool. I like that you can see the turtle and small shark in an open tank which is cool. It's small so you just need around one and a half hour to go through the whole place. There is also a small area beside the gift shop showing some specimens of penguin, seal, shark and etc. There's nothing much to eat there...only some drinks and some snacks. If you have a few hours of free time and have nothing to do, u can take a visit to this aquarium!

Poorly maintained
Aug 2015 • Family
This aquarium was probably great when it first opened. It has a really cool underwater tunnel that takes you through some massive tanks. Sadly, there aren't very many sea creatures to admire which takes away from a potentially great experience. It's overpriced for what is there.

Poor fish

Not a great aquarium. Most of the sea creatures kept in small tanks especially the giant turtles. The under water tunnel is pretty cool.

Confusion between 2 zoo's !
Aug 2014 • Friends
Dear people,

I can see there is some confusing between the 2 zoo's in Beijing!
The one for which this topic is meant is The Blue Zoo at the south end of Workers Stadium,
which is in the center of Beijing near Sanlitun and is quite small.

The other one some people refer to in this topic is the Beijing ZOO and Aquqrium which is
at the North-West corner of the Second Ring Road, and has it's own Subway station!
This one is much bigger and costs 120 Rmb combined ticket zoo and aquarium or 90 Rmb for the aquarium only! These 2 zoo's are about 20 km from each other!

Love the fish varieties!
May 2014 • Family
It's a great aquarium overall, but the place is a bit old now and the ticket price I found a bit too much (RMB 120 per adult, RMB 90 per child taller than 1m). We spent almost 2 hours there, the fish varieties are excellent, we especially love the tunnel to see the big tank. It's definitely a great place to bring kids to explore and learn.
We didn't see any show there, though there was one starting in 5 minutes when we decided to leave, because there were just too many people (mainland) and they were loud and not so kids-friendly.
Oh, another thing, you can't bring strollers to the facility. They'll stop you at the entrance (before going down the escalator, take your stroller and give you like a locker tag that with number that matches the tag they put on the stroller. So if you're taking little kids, be prepared to carry them to see the fish.

All in all, if you have several hours to kill, this is a great place to bring kids to explore and have a bit of fun.

Blue Zoo - Great place
Apr 2014 • Couples
I found this to be a good aquarium. One of the better ones that I have visited around the world. The only thing disappointing was they said that a show was going to be put on in the tank and all it was, was a few mermaids flowing around. This aquarium is worth a visit if in beijing.
