It's ok. It's like most aquarium although many of the tanks have surprisingly low walls. It's very dark in there and really quite expensive. Not really worth it IMO. If it's a rainy day and you have absolutely nothing better to do....and you want to...More

I was rather impressed. The aquarium may not be as sheer big in size as other aquariums in the world but they do have diversity including some creatures I didn't know exist (the ocean sunfish is amazingly big!)

The Busan Aquarium is very well designed and maintained, much better that most of the aquariums I've been too. It's near the beach so it is worth to visit it if you are in the area.

Busan aquarium it's great! We had visit quite a few aquariums in the world and the Busan it's definitely worth to visit. Specially for the kiddos. It also has an small play place inside that my kids loved it! Go for it!

Piranhas, sharks, water tunnels. A feast for eyes. There is a fee for entrance. 1 hour is enough for medium speed visit. There are also organized events, and discounts.

It is a small Aquarium with not many animals at all. We walked through the whole facility in less than 30 min.

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.
