This is an outdoor museum, with visitors viewing marine life through glass sides on ponds. Panels at each exhibit identify the fish. Worth the visit!

Outdoor aquarium in a beautiful location right at the water. Very relaxing, nice for a rest. It gives you some idea what you can expect to see when diving in this area but it is quite old fashioned.

Spent about an hour here on my dry day in Palau. It is centered around research into the health and vitality of the coral reefs around Palau. It's small but the exhibits are informative.

The aquarium has local fish some are in areas in the ocean but with a net around them. There are labeled so it's helpful. They work with the Coral Reef Conservation organization and help with research
