The place is large with three major exhibition areas. Each of them is fairly sizable. The exhibitions are divided into marine lives, fresh water and history of marine lives. It is well organized. Definitely good place for visiting with kids. The huge fish tanks are...More

The ticket price is 450 if you're more than 20 people, you can get a discount prices. Worth to go. It's good to bring your kids there. They can learn sth there. Or maybe do some activity there

If you are going to Kenting, you must visit this place. The National Museum of Marine Biology and Acquarium is totally under-rated. It should be one of the top 5 sites to visit in the south part of Taiwan. It is located in Checheng not...More
