This Museum is located near the Cruise ship terminal at Nha Trang. There were several pools containing fish. The water in these pools were murky. There were sections where they had glass panels to better view the fish. Those were also equally dirty and did...More

Don’t expect a big variety of marine life at this place. It’s probably the first marine aquarium in Nha Trang as the building and facilities looks very 1970s. You will see small sharks and giant turtles swimming in big separate pool but that’s really the...More

no investments to upgrade it, perhaps its primary purpose is not for tourists or profits. But you will have a nice relax in a hot morning or afternoon, not too busy but there are still visitors even on a week day. Compared to the more...More

We have been to this aquarium with our children. It was a sad experience. Animals in small cages, especially the turtles look very sad. There was a lot of plastic in the aquariums. Won't recommend it and would be good if they upgrade or close...More

A bit dated but quite interesting nonetheless. The marine life appears to be well looked after and happy with the exception of the seals which was very substandard. The lab with bottled specimens dating back to the 1920's was very good.

Yep, like the others have said, $15.00 U.S. Nothing in Vietnam that you do will cost very much by western standards! The place is not amazing but it is an interesting way to fill in an hour or two....
