Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam

Housed at the foot of the outcrop where Bao Dai Village is constructed, next to Cau Dau Wharf, with 6 kilometers south of Nha Trang, the Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam is an interesting aquarium in Nha Trang, where the exact image of the city marine environment can be found.

Established in 1922, the Oceanographic Museum of Vietnam has long become a popular destination for both domestic and foreign tourists. Nowadays, the museum sponsors many ongoing researches and community projects whose purposes are to maintain a high standard of aquatic life in Vietnam, as well as encourage the protection of Khanh Hoa’s specious coral reefs.

Here people will find a wide range of creatures from reef sharks, turtles, living coral, puffers, anemones, sea horses, and a whole array of colorful reef species, some of which cannot be found in other places in the world. Each of them has a label presenting their name, origin and characteristic in two different languages (Vietnamese and English). Over its long history, this museum has been holding more than 20,000 specimens of tropical marine creatures. There are also rare species’ skeletons or bodies kept in formaldehyde solution apart from the real fishes. However, kids can be most entertained to visit the big tropical turtles and crocodiles.
