About Phuket Aquarium, Phuket
Though this aquarium is quite small it has been extensively renovated and a terrific central exhibit has been added. This is the ‘Tunnel’, a 10 meter long glass underwater walk. It is thrillingly immersive. Right outside the tunnel is giant cod in its own large tank. Some of the other fish you can expect to see here include sharks, piranhas, cuttlefish, seahorses, dolphins, eel and colorful tropical fish. If you’re inclined to scuba dive around Phuket, the aquarium has some good resources on what you should expect to see in the waters surrounding the island. The aquarium’s other main task is to conduct marine biological research, and to breed sea turtles.

Phuket Aquarium, Phuket Reviews
The aquarium itself was okay. The animals are well taken care of and the tanks are clean. The surrounding displays are older and need some work and the lighting could be better. I believe they do good work here just need a face lift in some places.
Nice detour from the sunny and hot beaches. Yes, the tanks seem somewhat on the small side, but the overall look and feel is that the place is well maintained. From my own point of view the biggest negative was the early closing time.
Have had many visits to this place and always good value for money. The attraction is generally well maintained and the research center on site does some great environmental work. Unfortunately there is a shop at the exit which although not too expensive, if you have kids it's hard to avoid shopping for overpriced gifts and snacks.
The place is pretty good! The dorm show is not what you expect, it's not good! The rest of the place is fun, it's not world class but it's a good pitstop! You can get some great pictures but the reflection of the lights around makes it a challenge!
We took a cab here and it was a pleasure to kill 2 hours here looking at the sea life and exhibits. The aquarium seems a bit worn. The moving stairs under the largest tank wasn't working, but it was still nice to take a long stroll under the tank. The most notable parts of the aquarium and the sea horses and the giant grouper. Although small, it's relaxed atmosphere was nice. There's also an excellent gift shop before your exit with reasonably prices gifts and snacks. I paid 20 baht for an ice pop.
