They have a exhibit of various sea creatures and extinct remains. They have a turtle reserve and you can spend hours looking at them. The directions are clearly marked and help you to move from one exhibit to other.

With the local tour guide at this place, we understood much about the Vietnam sea and inside the sea... Many kinds of fish, coral... and a huge skeleton of big whale display... Supper!

Nice display of live fish and bottled items were interesting. Easy to find lol - if you go too far the port staff will direct you.

Saddest experience, many of the sharks do not move they just lie on the bottom of their small dirty pool, seems very depressing. The turtles looked depressed and sad in their tiny dirty enclosure, but the worst is the seal, in a tiny glass cage...More

They have a wide variety of ocean animals and fish on display. Although the fish tanks appeared fairly clean, many of the larger fish and animals were living in terrible conditions. The saddest part was probably the sea turtles and the manatee they have, they...More

The place needs to be painted which is not expensive so they obviously don't care about much. Seals and turtles are in painfully little places. Don't support this venue if you care about animals.

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

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....
