This was fun but considering all of the shows were in Chinese, we probably missed a lot. It was a typical aquarium show and, frankly, we could have skipped this one.

A surprisingly good polar acquarium, which we visited mid-winter. Just outside the gates to the Snow sculpture park, so a cab ride from downtown. The Beluga whales show was a highlight: don't miss it. The seal show was a lowlight: don't bother.

This place was super interesting, but not because it's a great aquarium. It's a very odd place that reminded me of the kinds of trippy 70's entertainment places with lots of flashy stuff and lots of commercialism. Many places in the US now do more about the natural environment & conservationism - this place had a display about fish -- in a not natural type environment -- next to a booth selling some really cheesy souvenirs.
Finally, the sea lion show was very wacky -- and you exit out into a place where you can buy all kinds of food.

My main memory of the Aquarium was seeing the polar bears pacing up and down in a small area. Judging by their noises and actions they were quite clearly disturbed.
