A nice nap
Dec 2020 • Family
I brought a child I sponsor for private education here on Christmas day with her father as a treat after lunch. I paid their tickets, but did not join them as their "foreigner" price was 220 vs 80 baht. During Covid I have routinely donated to feeding programs so it is not about money as such, but it is certainly a wrong attitude at a time when no tourists are in the country and when the powers here scratch their heads unable to figure how they will ever again replace the tourist dollars they are using. For 79 baht got an auto car wash on the way home. This to give other foreign readers a perspective on a cultural children's activity. My admission would have been double the price of my lunch. I have seen Shed aquarium Chicago for less and that is genuine world class. OK to send kids unescorted so stay in the waiting verandah.

Small aquarium
Oct 2019 • Family
Small aquarium, where has been operated for long time. In general, building is really old even some areas had been renovated. Full will knowledge and good place for kids. The most lovely zone is jelly fish, where decorate with colour changing lighting.

Nice Aquarium - healthy specimens well cared for.

Not too busy

Operates dual pricing so foreigners pay 220 THB , Thais pay 80 THB !

Most of the signage and information is in Thai only

Not big but will take an hour or so to walk round

Interesting way to spend an hour
Dec 2018 • Solo
The aquarium was easy to find in on the campus of Burapha University on the main road to Bang Saen beach. It has a large free car park and and is an attractive building in pleasant surroundings.
There's a large reception with some marine exhibits on display. The ticket office is at one end. Unfortunately they have a policy of dual pricing. Asian looking people pay the lower price of 80THB, while foreign looking people people are charged over 300% more. However, if you can show evidence of residency in Thailand you can pay the normal fee.
They have a large, interesting collection of fish and other sea creatures, which are well displayed. Worth the 80THB entrance fee, but not 220THB. Other than the Latin and English names of the species on display, all the information is written in Thai script. It's a shame and spoils the experience for foreign visitors who have to pay the excessive entrance fee and unfortunately get nothing in return. If I had paid the excess entrance fee, I would have felt ripped off.

Unexpected surprise, very well done exhibits.
Jan 2018 • Couples
A real treat, went mid-week so was very quiet & most of the time, had the place to ourselves. We especially liked the jelly fish exhibits, very nice, hypnotic. Also very nice exhibits of tropical fish along the way and the giant tank of very large fish etc. The front has a very nice display especially the octopus's that put on a show chasing each other. Also there is a museum to visit upstairs with more exhibits. They have a large covered lobby, nice to rest in the heat or enjoy some of the ice cream or other snacks they sell. If in town, recommend visiting if like fish & believe mid-week would be quieter.
