Views from Travelers:
There are so many fish and other sea lives that I have never seen. It is really beautiful inside. I brought the baby there. He had so much fun. There is also dolphin show and that's wonderful.
The aquarium is located in Beijing zoo. You can see dolphin show and sea lion show. But you should go earlier and sit in the front to see clearly. It is a good place to get knowledge.
I never went to a larger aquarium than Beijing Aquarium. It also has more sea life species than any other places. It is delightful that there are many performances.

Aquarium is usually for children. But it is really beautiful inside. I like it!
