What a great place to visit! We really enjoyed looking at the amazing variety of marine creatures and fish on display. Very educational with a great emphasis on rescue and release! Lots of photo opportunities and very reasonably priced entry fee. A must see if you are in Busan:))

A good place when the weather is sad, & when it's not crowded. We spent a good 1hour 1/2 there. Everything is perfectly organize. A nice aquarium. Price is not cheap !

Not the biggest or best aquarium I've been to but some good exhibits and nice big tanks. Loved the rays and the different jelly fish and sea horses. Not a lot of English signage although the guide leaflet is available in English. There is a glass bottom boat across the top of the shark tank which looked fun - if... More

Not really a lot in here but smaller fish and jellyfish, there are the larger sting rays sharks and turtles but that's it really, the penguin enclosure very small no wales or dolphins very quick to get around.

The forecast was for heavy rainfall and strong winds so my wife and I visited the aquarium to avoid the weather. It is a very neat and organized aquarium with lots to see and discover. I didn't learn much because of not being able to read the signs but it was over all enjoyable. Highlights were the shark feeding, penguins,... More

It's not very big so you won't need more than 1h to see it unless you will wait for all extra activities. At 26000 won + 7000 for the glass bottom boat, I would expect a bit more. But the penguins and the sharks are there, the tunnel is nice, so it's a nice experience especially on a rainy day.... More

I've been to many aquariums around the world and this one I would say is above average and has what most others have. I'd say most aquariums are the same. I think I paid W20,000. I blew threw the place in 40 minutes with my girlfriend. I'm sure kids would enjoy this place.

Nice acuarium. It's not better than the one in Atlanta and I'm sure isn't better than the one in Okinawa either but it's worth a visit while in Busan
