We passed by and thought why not. From the first interaction when you pass money on a little slide and receive change back in the same way, the whole experience lacked love, care and attention. Some of the fish were clearly too big, there were one or two dead ones and, well, it just wasn't nice. Even the first attraction-... More

Previous reviewers had said this is small but interesting which I guess it is but there seemed to be too many fish per tank and a lot of the water in the tanks was smelly and really dirty. It costs 350r to get in and I don't think it's worth it. Upstairs the "Scientific" area is full of stuffed birds... More

This is the aquarium, but small likes a fish bowl. No special fishes inside, and just only need ~ 5-10 minutes to finish the whole. 350 rubles per adult. May be this is the smallest aquarium in the world.

The Oceanarium is not very big and the entrance hall is pretty lousy, more souvenir shops(jewelry even) than exhibits. But the main hall has some pretty interesting... More

Very meager and poor interior. Poor exhibition of marine life ... Boorish behavior of staff. Coffee machine stands near the toilet and in the same place near the toilet to drink you order it (step left, step right - shooting on the spot!). Administrator absent from the workplace all the time. All activities aimed at the oceanarium commerce, sale of... More

Ive been to quite a few aquariums and unfortunately this is probably the worst ive been to. It cost about $7.50 per person to get in and if you took your time you would probably spend at most an hour there... You pay at a small cashier outside the building who provides you with a receipt that they just take... More
