  • Coex Aquarium is fun and interesting especially for young kids. My daughter is 3.10 years old, thus, still free; payment starts at 4 if I am not mistaken. The map at the start of the "journey" makes g...  more »
  • In my 3 Aquarium where we were back in Lotte Vorlde and Building 63, this Aquarium is the best. It's more than newer and 63 building and more modern than Lotte. So if you have a choice, choose it. By the way there at the end of a good gift shop, there is a steep dinosaurs, if anyone likes figures, my 3 pieces already scored, although they were each approximately 1500.

  • Another must see if you have time while you're in Seoul. Very up-to-date and interactive Aquarium! Membership for a year compared to one visit is usually the better deal if you plan on going more than wants. I enjoyed going with A 4 year old and I think I had just as much fun if not more. My favorite is the indoor theater area with stadium seating that you can just sit and watch the Sharks and Stingrays and fish swim through!
  • There were some animals that caught me by surprise, such as prairie dogs and manatees. The first few rooms have small Korean fish with less wow-factor, but keep treading on you won't be disappointed.
  • This is an awesome aquarium! It's was well worth the $25 to get in.
  • Manetees are beautiful and funny (specially while eaing cabbage haha). The sharks are amazing! Its nice inside, including the part where fishes are living in a sink, phone cabin, bed etc.. but some of the fishes cant be happy in those weird "aquariums".. that orange fish in "drinking water dispenser" was not swimming but lying on the floor of her plastic bottle aquarium. Is she alright?? I dont like the part where children can "touch" sea animals. Eventho the sign says 'dont take animals out of the aquarium', what I saw was a little boy grabbing an animal, taking it out of water and smashing it in his hands, (then dropping it back ..and reaching for another one),I was shocked. There should definitely be somebody supervising !!! Overprised.
  • Excellent Aquirium in a beautiful Mall 'Coex'. The Aquarium has great variety of fish to observe.
