If going to Busan this is a must see! The tanks are huge. You walk through a tunnel where the sharks are swimming over you. You can see their gills pulsing. It was amazing and must see. Various games to play to find the different...More

We have been many times! Has toilet, nappy change facilities. Also has a jungle gym for young children to play for a while. The aquarium has a 'touch' area of star fish etc. A lovely spot to visit!

As it was raining, we decided to choose an indoor location to spend the morning, and what better place to go than the aquarium that is right next to our hotel? Turned out we had a good leisurely morning spent at the aquarium. Watching the...More

It's a very small underworld, maybe good for children education but not worth a visit and price paid . Nothing extra ordinary except selective fish in a tank and light effect.

雖然規模不大,但非常有韓國自己可愛又華麗的特色,除了有非常多的秀可以參與,互動性的遊戲讓大人都玩得很開心,我們在企鵝區玩了非常久,遊戲之餘也包含海洋保育的概念,各區也有特別的浮水印集點供收集,淡季遊客不多時過來可以玩得很盡興!就在海雲台海水浴場旁,交通十分方便! Though it's not big, but has it's very own Korean style! Many shows and interactive features, everybody can have fun here. We spent many time at the penguin zone. A nice place to visit when you're in Haeundae.

Easy to reach, well-priced, and quite abundant of sea life. A great place to spend time especially if the Haeundae Beach nearby is too crowded.

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.
