I liked the layout of the aquarium, they have a really nice setting when you first enter the aquarium underground. What I really liked was you can walk over the shark exhibit and get cool pictures of your feet and sharks. My husband and I had a lot of fun with that. Overall a nice aquarium. Go if you are...

We are from Chicago and have the renowned Shedd Aquarium....so it is hard to see others without prejudice. The aquarium is small and can be seen in an hour. While I was disappointed, my 16 year old loved it. She felt the small spaces made her feel like she was a part of the exhibits. There were about 5 other... More

Took my twin 2 year old and 9 year old on a Monday. It wasn't too busy and everyone enjoyed it. Really loved the play structure in the middle to let the kids play. I wish that the boat tour was more frequent, we had planned on doing it but it was an hour wait before the next one. Cost... More

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.

This is a must visit place for those who haven't to aquarium before. It was real fun to see Penguins. Sharks were also a major attraction. The only limitation was that all the shows were in Korean language only.

Though I've been to many aquariums, I was pleasantly surprised to see sea life I had never encountered before. Another fascinating observation was that some of the fish were really enormous. So even though it was an average-sized aquarium, some exhibits managed to take my breath away.

Not comparable to the American standards of aquariums, but typical of what's around South Korea. My family and I are intrigued and love sea life, so every opportunity we get we go visit aquariums when we go to new places. We were really excited to see pictures outside the aquarium of green sea turtles and was very disappointed to see... More
