The aquarium is pretty small and not very versatile.
A new one is supposed to be opening this year at Phuket, hopefully it will be a better one.

Felt bad for fishes as the tanks looked stained with algae. All aquariums had similar lightening irrespective of different fishes and their habitat. Some fishes were too shy to come out and were scared when people passed by, esp. puffer fish was puffed in a...More
I took my 5-year old daughter here during the low season (October) and we had a good time.
It is located at the very southern tip of the island, so takes a bit of effort to get there. We got a taxi to wait for...More
Located at the far end of Panwa Cape, the Phuket Aquarium is right at the far end corner and take up the hill there. Good variety of Thai sea lives on display with a little souvenir shop and cafe at the end. I would have...More
Just to let you know as in some reviews, photos and comments, there is now no baby turtle nursery or turtle sanctuary. It has been moved to an outer island, unfortunately I am unsure where and have been unable to find out much more information...More
I have been to plenty of aquaria and by now would be familiar with the setup. Without the turtle conservation area which is closed for renovation now, I would compare Phuket Aquarium with Langkawi Aquarium in terms of size. However Langkawi Aquarium has a section...More

Kids liked it. Don't get all excited about the "show" though. There was a huge banner there (as of a few months ago) that advertised in exciting big red letters that there was a show a few times a day. This "show" was a 10-minute projection in an empty 20-person theatre, featuring a talking mermaid robot statue. But overall we found it a decent place to pass a rainy day. However, they do have dual pricing - where foreigners are charged a MUCH higher price.
