Pretty cheap admission price as far as aquariums go, definitely aimed at younger audiences though. Nice variety of fish, but nothing to the extent of dolphins or sea lions. Gift shop was also disappointing, mostly a collection of cheap stuffed animals and zero souvenirs that...More

Everyone told me this is a 'must see', but I found it a bit disappointing. It feels more like a noisy theme park experience. I don't understand why you need loud music to accompany observing fish and sea creatures. A tour guide was explaining to...More

I love aquariums and the best in the world, for me, is the Monterey Bay. While the Busan version is not Monterey, this one was surprisingly interesting, interactive, and geared to the little ones. Had it been not so crowded, I would have enjoyed it...More

Nice aquarium located near Haeundae Beach. Has fantastic displays and walking over and next to the glass tanks with fish, dolphins, sea life, sharks etc was a highlight. Visited here with my partner in summer- July 2014.

This is a fun vacation spot! Lots of levels and things to see. I would skip out on the glass bottom boat ride though, not worth it and extremely hot

Our son is 5 and he loved spending the afternoon here. The place was a bit pricey but the number of animals they are taking care of makes it worth the cost. We will return.

There is a small boat that they take you in but you have to pay to go along. You cannot get into the water in the aquarium at all. If you desire scuba diving with fish, I recommend you go further north on the South Korean... More

It's about $35 per adult just for entrance, other things to see/do (rides, etc) cost more.
