All of this from the end of 2017 can be seen by visitors visiting the Lithuanian sea museum, who have finally opened a completely changed and newly-lit aquarium after four years, the biggest show of which is the tunnel, in which the visitors find themselves as if submerged under water, as sturgeons, skates and other fish swim over their heads.
In one of the aquariums you will see the poisonous fish that if a man would eat or were to be stuck by sudden death would occur. Separated thematic aquarium reveals how the fish coexist with the sea urchins. Those who want to not only devote themselves in depth, but also to deepen their knowledge will be supported by mounts with computer information, where they will be able to find information about fish, their species.

The main adornment and novelty of the renovated museum aquarium is a 25 m long see-through acrylic tunnel. It is located beneath the main pool, in which there are floating surprisingly large fish – longer sturgeons than Arvydas Sabonis, reaching 2.3 meters.
