The place is so big, we were there for 3 hours and did not get bored even a minute. I usually am disappointed after going to this kind of place in any other countries, but not for this one. We went there with a 1.5 year old boy and he was so excited. Love it.

I go to this museum every time i come back to Taiwan. You can take a tour with an audioguide but even without it is interesting. There are so many different fish and even penguins! Within the museum there are many shops and restaurants and even a starbucks so you can buy souvenirs and food whenever you feel like it.

This is the best Acquarium/water museum that I have been to. Better than Chicago, San Francisco, Monterey, or Los Angeles. It is sad that they are keeping the lonely beluga whale in here, but beyond that it is up to date, expansive, and fun.

It's a interesting place to spend a day and end it with a refreshing whale water fountain where you and the kids can play a while

Kids can spend 1/2 day there, with the outdoor water playing area at the Entrance, amazed by the big fish living environment.

We had an amazing day. We went with 5 children in the age from 3-9 and they where all fascinated. We had read reviews about the Beluga, that is was lonely and stressed, but it was not what we saw. There where now 2 belugas and they played and looked to enjoying themselves. We saw 3D movie about the sea... More

It is a great place to visit especially in the afternoon if you'd like to avoid the severe sunlight. Mainly, there are 3 parts in the aquarium (coral kingdom, waters of Taiwan, waters of the world. There are different aquarium in different parts. Since we're in a rush, we only see one show - fish feeding at the coral kingdom.... More

Due to the heavy rain with kinda pity, most of people move to the only indoor place for fun. So, it's not so smooth for the tour in the part, including watching the show. Anyway, it's a good museum, full of education, entertainment and fancy matter. You can also find food, rices, noodles and also fried ones, inside in the... More

Visited here when I was studying abroad, it was totally worth the ride from where I was staying. There is plenty to do, and tons of different exhibits to look at. They even had a restaurant with good, reasonably priced food. Most everything was in English as well as Chinese. Would love to take my little brother one day.

We spent a whole day there even though we did not plan to go there in the first place. All the aquariums are big, especially the one in the "coral kingdom" part, where you walk through four tunnels. The basin is big enough to contain half of a sunken ship, and the animals seem happy in there, with lots of... More
