The aquarium is just fair enought, nothing you wouldn't find in your own country, just an average place - still fascinating for those who loves sealife - but somehow i expected more. The real big issue i have with this place is the fact that if you are not Thai you pay double price for the entrance - which i... More

This is a small aquarium but has a lovely feel and a good way to spend an hour in the afternoon. You can see the turtles as well which is lovely and know you are helping with their conservation projects by going to the aquarium

Small but not too bad, bit underwhelming, the best part is the turtle rehabilitation center out back! Take the time for the walk to visit them.

Really impressed with the Phuket Aquarium!! The Sea creatures on display are beautiful and the translator helped us enough to understand enough.. The colours of the various fish were amazing!

Went here on a rainy day. I couldn't help but think that most of the fish and other sea creatures on display could be seen for real with the help of a snorkel mask around the Phi Phi Islands not far away.... Not all the displays have English translations but the ones that are there are helpful and informative. It's... More

Sad, tired, shabby, dark and depressing...I'd recommend getting a snorkel and heading to one of the islands instead.

Needs attention over in 15/20 min and I think maybe just some tidy work. Still enjoyed checking it out but.

It was a burning hot day & thought an indoor activity would be great. Made the decision to visit the aquarium and it turned out to be a pleasant visit. Do not compare with the big scale ones in other countries but the low price and exhibits are really decent enough.

Took my children for the first time to the aquarium, first time visit and was very disappointed, well the entry fee makes up for the lack of fish and predators but which are still to expensive, reason being when you visit the turtle pool 200m away from the aquarium which is part of the aquarium you will walk on the...

I visited with my 4 year old daughter who loved it ,but some of the exhibits were old and needed refreshing . Price was right as free for her and as I have a Thai drivers licence only 50 baht for me ..Not sure what cost is for tourists but probably not much .
