Nice small aquarium, not a terrific staff

I don't know what other reviewers are saying about the "poor conditions" for the animals, because it looked fine to me. While it looks kinda dingy on the outside, it's actually... read more

There aren't a lot of things to do in Zhengzhou, but the aquarium is one of them. There are some things that make this place unique compared to other aquariums I've been to (Shedd's, Monterrey, etc). There were a great deal of local fish, including some absolute monsters (10 feet?). Their sea lion show is great, including a sea lion... More

You would not think you would find amazing sealife in a place like zhengzhou. The sealife is great and it's all interactive and interesting. I took some great photos! As long as you don't think about the small tanks. It was obvious that the tanks were too small for most of these animals. All looked healthy and it would be... More

I don't know what other reviewers are saying about the "poor conditions" for the animals, because it looked fine to me. While it looks kinda dingy on the outside, it's actually quite nice inside. There is a good selection of large and small fish from around the world, plus a sea lion show and a mermaid show. You can even... More

The aquarium had a great many animals that I had never seen before...such as the arapaima which was featured on River Monsters. You could feed lettuce to sea turtles, bottles to fish, and fish to seals if you wanted to. They also had a shark petting area and a live touch tank for other animals such as horseshoe crabs. They...

By now no one should be supporting animals in captivity. The dolphins they have came from Taiji ( from the movie the cove) where thousands of dolphins are slaughtered every year. The dolphins have no freedom, and belong in the ocean. Its time to put these places out of business.

The Good: I was living in Zhengzhou and went to the aquarium on a date. We had fun feeding cabbage to the turtles, touching the horseshoe crabs and feeding the koi. Most of it is indoors so you can escape the weather. It is a bit far from the city center, but taxi's are super cheap. There is a humongous... More

It is actually pretty good for ZZ, for lack of much more to do. Although it is just for kids, I did enjoy it.

Couple of neat hands-on attractions like bottle feeding koi and touching horse shoe crabs...my kids really enjoyed that . It is a bit far to get to from the center of the city . The seal show left a bit to be desired definitely not along the lines of seaworld .
