Intermediate experience. Sad fish. Dirty aquariums. Only interesting things ware the giant baramundi and some coral fish...but you can just get a mask and fins and snorkel in front of the aquarium. Overall fair experience. My daughter (8 y.o.) shares this opinion.

We stayed within walking distance so spent a couple hours walking through. Bigger than I expected with useful information. Small admission fee. Very quiet until 3 buses of children came in. We just sat on a bench until they passed and enjoyed the rest of our visit. Worth a stop if you're in the area, but wouldn't make the trip... More

Small but very nice aquarium. Lots of sea inhabitants. Really interesting hot day activity with kids. Beautiful seascapes around.

I really enjoyed this aquarium, the creatures we saw here are so unlike any in the aquariums back home that it was mesmerising. We particularly enjoyed seeing the turtles at the end. You left feeling like you had really learned a lot too. Only thing I would say is it's irritating and quite cheeky that as tourists we were charged... More

The aquarium is surprisingly large and has a good variety of fish species. It is very cheap to get in, although foreigners are charged slightly more. There is also a nature trail and they have tanks containing turtles.

If you are around Panwa, I recommend to see this, but its probably not worth extra trip. Some fishes are really interesting, but in general the aquarium is not too big

A nice aquarium with plenty to see and to learn. You can spend there an hour or many hours, depending on how much you want read the educating texts on the fish, corals and other sealife. Our 7-year old liked the place very much! The Up side down Catfish, the tunnel with the Rays and huge Sea Groupers were his... More

I was skeptical but this Aquarium was very well done. It is geared towards education and showing what human impact is doing to the oceans. I was very pleasantly surprised.
