  • 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.

  • 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.

  • There are lots of different sea animals to see---whether it be sharks, turtles, or even deep sea creatures. The displays are well-crafted. The staff is friendly and available to ask questions (mostly in Korean but some speak English). There's a small hands-on exhibit, where you can touch starfish and old shark eggs.

  • Good aquarium with lots to see. Very good for children. Check it out if you're in the Busan area.

  • The aquarium is very small, with little sea creatures to see. It will be a pretty good place for small kids but not for adults.
