A bit dated but quite interesting nonetheless. The marine life appears to be well looked after and happy with the exception of the seals which was very substandard. The lab with bottled specimens dating back to the 1920's was very good.

This is a sad place for the animals. Tanks are way too small for the sharks, turtles and rats... There is even a seal who is trapped into a small tank Would avoid

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....
