Zone 2 offers an exciting opportunity to journey on a 4D submarine to the world’s most popular sites in the ocean. You can see it all in captivating detail. This pavilion’s exhibitions send a strong message of the vital importance of marine ecosystem preservation.
Experience the diversity of mudflat ecosystems in five exhibition areas: salt marsh, mudflat, mixture of sand flat and mudflat, sand flat and rocky shore. Various types of mudflat organisms including mudskippers, sand worms, Constricta clams, Nassa mud snails, and barnacles are also on display. Take the time to observe the distinct characteristics of each mudflat’s ecosystem and how mudflat organisms adapt to ecosystem changes.
An exciting 4D virtual submarine journey around the world’s oceans awaits visitors at this zone. The submarine departs from Yeosu and cruises along the coral beds of the Moon Island, Jeju; passes the Coral Triangle with its rich marine life; travels to the Antarctic – the repository of planktons; continues on to the Galapagos Islands, known as a paradise of unique animals; sails deep in the waters of the Peru-Chile Trench, famous for bioluminescence and deep-sea hydrothermal vents; and concludes its journey at the Mariana Trench – the deepest part of the world’s oceans. This is sure to be one of the most memorable trips in your life.
