Free, a good 2 hours' worth of visit, Very well laid out, excellent toilets, but very little English explanation. We were the only English people there so not surprising really. You need photo ID to get in

This place is nice to visit either when you are fan of natural history or if it is too hot outside and you want to spend couple hours. Take metro line 1 to Heishijiao station and than take bus 523 to the terminal station - Natural history museum. Museum is free, you should show your passport at entry. Nice exhibition of marine mammals, fishes, as well as small exhibition of dinosaur. Most of the labels are in English. Museum is not too large, you can spend 1-2 hours in there. There is also a small area for kids when they can play.

This museum was relocated to a new area beside the sea in 1998. The museum has a theme called Nature and Man.It has several species from biological, marine and animal world. It is very educative too. There are several paper mache statues of animals and birds.The building has a beautiful architecture and faces the beautiful sea. A good place to see, walk about. It is not easy to get a taxi here so one has to walk right to the main road to get a taxi. The museum entry is free.

The museum is located on the Blackrock Reef shore, where people can feel the sea breeze blowing and listen to the song of the sea waves. There are total 12 exhibition halls in the museum, the animal specimens displayed inside are the most in China. When people are looking at the fossils or models of those rare animals, such as psittacosaurus ("parrot lizard") and black right whale, they can learn how an unique animal is born, alive, and extinct then. It's worth to see because Dalian is the southernmost city in Liaoning province and its three sides face toward the oceans. Therefore, the types of marine plants and animals are the most in China. Besides, the museum is look like an England kingdom, it's a beautiful sight with the large shore there. Sometimes, there may be some people collecting many pieces of kelp. No matter you are inside or outside the Dalian Natural History Museum, you can breathe with the nature there.
