  • After the drama "Extraordinary Attorney Woo" it seems that many people have an interest in the whale. So as am I. I'm glad I was here. I especially liked the short film about the whale. After...

  • Great way to spend the afternoon with kids in Ulsan! It is a dinamic old-style village with different activities and exhibitions. It includes a very nice 5DX movie.

  • It's a nice little place where u can watch dolphins n other fish in aquarium. It's very well decorated n good place for kids
  • Interesting complex of museum's, old whaling boat, cultural village, tram ride, old battleship, whale Watching tours, and other small areas of interest. We went when they had their annual "Whaling Festival" so there was live entertainment, beer festival, food festival and other items for children. There is onsite parking and small admission fee for some areas. Look in pictures and you can see a price list. About half of the display boards in the museum only have Korean storyboards that explain the whales, cultural tie in and so forth. That being said little children may be bored. But, to peak their interest their is a long slide that they can use to go from the third floor to the second where the exit is. The whaling boat is free to go on and just outside the entrance to the Museum. Also in the immediate area is the whale watching tours and entrance to the overhead Tram Ride to the cultural village. It is 1.6 km long and very interesting. You purchase tickets for a time slot and then come back to the area at the appropriate time and wait. Overall it was an interesting experience.
