The National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium is situated near the sea, close to the Kenting National Park in Pingtung. Taiwan is an island surrounded by water. It is rich in water resources and developed a diversity of distinctive cultures. The museum is dedicated in preserving such gift. The aim of establishing such museum, apart from biological education, commerce, culture, and recreation, is the respect for the environment. If it weren't for the appropriate care for Mother Nature, we wouldn't be able to experience her blessings amongst the natural abundance.

It is organized into three main areas: Waters of Taiwan, Coral Kingdom Pavilion, and Waters of the World, along with administrative, education, experimental, research, maintenance, and international conference buildings. The 84 meters underwater passage through 150 gallon aquarium in Coral Kingdom pavilion is one of the most interesting features.
