What people are saying:

Housed in a grand French-colonial building in the port district of Cau Da at the far south end of Nha Trang is the National Oceanographic Museum.It’s attached to the Oceanographic Institute founded in 1923, and signs direct you around the tanks of colourful live marine life and the 60,000 jars of pickled specimens that make up the collection. There are also stuffed birds and sea mammals and displays of local boats and fishing artefacts. Most of the signs have English translations, so a guide is unnecessary.

    OK but not more

    Quite a few tanks, with explanations in English too, but not so well kept, looks a bit shabby. The open tanks with small sharks and turtles seemed too small. The collection of dead fishes in formalin ...
