Came here after the Taejongdae lookout–take the 101 bus and get off when it turns left at a fork in the road and walk down the right fork for a few minutes. I think you can take another bus but I couldn’t find where that one left from. The building is pretty easy to identify once you get near it. The anchors outside help.

At the time there was a display on Tidal flats which was pretty interesting but it didn’t have English on the display.

Then there were some adorable photos of kids playing in mud. I’m pretty sure that these are there all the time.

It was also all decked out for Christmas which was really cute.

There was some art work on display in the basement, but I liked the boats hanging from the ceiling more!

There were some live fish as well, but not too many interesting fish other than the lion fish. Oh, and starfish that you can pick up and play with, and, if you’re the Korean boy below, throw as hard as you can back into the water.

Also some interactive things where you can practice working on a sail boat! If I was a kid or if the line was not so long I would have done this.

The top floor was all about the history of Korea and things Koreans have done in relation to water. The best was this one with the seductive seal.

The view from the top was not great, as the roof extends for awhile.
