The museum is quite a walk from the nearest subway station, and the last stretch is uphill, taking about 10-15 minutes. Once you get there, there are 4 floors, each showcasing different categories of marine life, from prehistoric fossils, to manta rays, sharks, fish, crabs, corals, etc. It's interesting to see different marine exhibits on display and there are also informative placards to give you a better idea of the characteristics of each group exhibited. It's also organised in such a way that you walk from one exhibit to another, until eventually you reach the exit.

There are also live exhibits of turtles and lizards, which could have been better maintained as the glass displays evidently could use a good cleaning. However, as admission is free, it is understandable that resources are limited in this area.

Busan marine natural history museum is one of the important locations you need to visit if you visit Busan. You need to get the exact location when you intend to visit. I got lost searching for it. But it deserves the effort. Comfortable cloth and shoes are needed to feel comfortable because walking and some climbing are sure. It is beautiful with a great collection of preserved and a live animals.. It is nice to visit. Free entry. Timing 9 am till 6 pm.

This museum is part of a larger park complex that includes a cable car.

We took the kids to the museum on a really cold and wet November saturday afternoon, amd they liked it.

The museum is large and had a variety of life sized displays that the kids liked. It also has live displays that include fish, crocodiles, snakes, turtles etc. However, the live display enclosures were a little old.

Also, every Saturday and Sunday they play animation movies that the kids can watch for free, which was pretty cool. One of the movies that they had playing was Kung fu panda. However, most of the movies are sea life based.

The museum is free and there is a car park near by. If you have a disability card, you recieve a discount on the carpark fee. There is also a bus stop directly in front of the museum.

The live animal exhibits are not great, but other than that I think is pretty interesting. It's also free. Connected to Geumgang Park.
