Worth the small entrance fee. Great place to take the little ones and spend an afternoon. Well kept and the displays were very educational.

We've been to the aquarium in Paragon Mall (Bangkok), and I've been to ones in Singapore and Baltimore and this compares with those, not quite as nice as the last two, but in terms of what's there similar to Paragon's.

With a long coastline, Thailand has several centres of marine science, of which Bangsean is one of the best. Sea turtles are being bred here, and visitors can see them up close. A nice visit for families.

Aquarium and museum are worth visiting. Their focus is a little bit different than most of aquariums beeing scientific institute. A lot of jellyfishes! 220 baht for adult and 80 for children (tourist). For thai prizes need for work permit (80/40). Seemed to be popular for schools because there were about 7 bus full of pupils.
