Phuket Aquarium - Review
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
🤔 Depends on what you like. VERY BIG fish, VERY WEIRD deep-ocean specimens, VERY UGLY eels 😱 Exhibits are limited, building is dated and part of the outdoor areas were closed for upgrading works (July '18). Otherwise, worth a visit if you have the time. Caution: No other attractions in the area - Panwa Cape. I went early (😵 very early) for photos of the Sunrise nearby + breakfast. Open at 8:30 ensures privacy.
Maybe this place is not worth a visit for someone familiar to aquariums but because the only one in my city back home is empty, this place is awesome for me. I saw creatures that I never saw before in my life. Wide variety of fishes and other sea organisms. True beauty. Very cheap entry fees makes the visit almost free. The distance from patong was the only buzz here. No regrets
Tanks are too small for the larger fish, conditions are filthy. The turtle looked like it was literally crying. Would be easy way to entertain kids that aren't so switched on...basically, save your money.
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.
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.
