“Smaller but well done. A hit for elementary and middle school aged.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

The Busan Aquarium is three floors and offers multiple level salt water aquarium with sharks and other large fish as the main attraction. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a feeding or other special event every half hour or so. We were there for a little over 90 minutes and saw three feedings. It was 70,000 for 90 minutes which is comparable to a meal out plus we took 30 pictures to last a lifetime. If you have younger school aged children, then it's a must see.

“Interesting and large aquarium with noisy shows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Lots of fish and other sea-life (and freshwater life) to see here. Some of the shows are also interesting (e.g., feeding the sharks) but they are accompanied by loud music, and commenting by a moderator (in Korean only), and (when we visited) attended by hectic crowds with lots of excited school kids.
Most of the items are provided with English information signs, albeit only a limited version of the Korean explanation

“Disappointing for so-called largest aquarium in Korea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Not good value for money. All other interesting attractions are not free. However you have more space to walk / visit than the aquarium in Seoul COEX

“Reasonably priced and worth at least a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Took the City Explorer and stayed at this stop for 2 hours. I dont recommend the add ons of the glass bottom boat or the 3d ride, but the exhibits are worth seeing .
