  • I enjoyed this aquarium. There was a wide variety of sea life here. They provide a schedule of events happening throughout the day. If you miss one, there's usually another time. I went in the afternoon and due to time constraint, I was only able to see one event. I would recommend going in the morning and planning for at least half a day to be able to see most of the events. There's one event they don't do on Mondays. A bit pricey, so if you have a coupon, bring it! Overall, I enjoyed this place and would recommend it.

  • This feedback is no reflection on the amazing creatures of the sea that adorn this underground aquarium. There are better facilities across the planet that do a better job at the up keep of the aquarium and the life in those tanks

  • Nice little visit. Not huge but interesting. I can see why the price seem a little high at 29000 won per person, but if you think about the rescue services they do and raising awareness about marine life, it don't seem too much? (At least I think that) One of better English translation around, and it was nice to see feeding time for some of the animals. As place I small, you are likely to see one or 2 feeding at best. Overall worth a visit.

  • everything fine but its too expansive when u oftenly go here i recommend 1year user tiket that so cheap and u can see special animal at event time

  • Great place to take little ones. Thwy are constantly updating their exhibits. Good to go once a year.
