  • Ulsan is a city famous for its whale. If you visit the Museum in the past, various equipment, including the whaling ships and whales and there are so many things that are related to the exhibition. If you visit a child.

  • Zhang captured the shipyard formerly known for its whaling. The Whale Museum, you feel the heat captured the old chapter. And more from the old town where you can see there is implemented.

  • Pretty neat museum, but understandably not much information in English inside. The price is pretty cheap for entry, and it's worth a visit even without being able to read everything inside. It's somewhat small, so you might only spend 30 minutes to an hour, but there in an aquarium nearby worth going to as well.
  • This is a fantastic place. Koreana share their culture and tradition. Needless to say, that, we are strongly against whale killing.
  • Very cool, but very small for a museum. Total time spent inside was 30 minutes.
  • Good place for children.
  • Good place to visit in ulsan.. ferry travel is a must to go..
