Large but not amazing Apr 30, 2011
We visited the Beijing Aquarium recently to satisfy the undersea cravings of our 10 year old and 14 year old. this did not extend to scuba diving in the large tank, although it could have (our older son is scuba certified, and the Beijing Diving club offers lessons and dive experiences in the tank).

Positives: Some very interesting single exhibits, like the massive sturgeons (the biggest looked almost 10 feet long), two beluga whales, the jellyfish display.

Negatives: the dolphin/seal show can be skipped, unless you know Chinese. A lot of bantering with the crowd by the perky hosts, very little in the way of action. We left before the end. Since the rest of the museum gets a lot less crowded during the show, you'd be better off using the time to avoid all the elbowing.

Also, there's not much English in the exhibit descriptions.

Weird: some of the decorations are downright bizarre - like the ice planet scene with astronauts, penguins and seals.

Beijing Aquarium Apr 18, 2009
Beijing Aquarium is one of my favorite places to go when I am in Beijing. It is the largest inland aquarium in the world. I love seeing the sea lions & dolphin shows, which are well presented. In my travel blog, there are videos of dolphin shows.
