Quite a sad excuse for an aquarium. It has plenty of species, and some of the tanks are well put together, but the larger tanks are nowhere large enough for the sharks housed there. It’s also very overpriced. Very disappointing indeed

Not impressed at all..have been to many much nicer and bigger aquariums...what kind of aquarium has a fashion section? Really crowded and Koreans are just rude and run over your feet with strollers and consrantly run into you amd don't even acknowledge it

I am giving this aquarium a 4 star because there wasn’t a big whale shark like Osaka’s aquarium. Other than that, it is definitely a place to go if you are bringing family. It has all the essentials of an aquarium and there are pretty...More

We went to the sand festival right on Haeundae beach. The Sand festival was so disappointing that we decided to go to the Aquarium just to have more to do. The Aquarium is right on the beach so if you’re already there, you don’t need...More

Nice, not too big, just for small trip with family. Something to play for children. Interesting way to show the fish. Nearby sea and beach. Not expensive. Just for 1h walk. Gift shop, restaurants, restrooms. All what you need.

안녕하세요. 내부에는 롯데리아 외 한식당이 있다, 좀더 퀄리티 있는 음식을 원한다면 외부에서 식사 후 입장하면 됩니다.

There is a small food court next to the aquarium when you exit.
