  • I've done some Aquariums but this one is really well-done. There are a lot of animals that I didn't have the chance to see before that day. The visit will take you around 2 or 3 hours. The entrance is...  more »

  • you'd think an aquarium inside the basement of a mall would be lacklustre, but wow you'd be wrong. This place is huge and has so many different areas. You can spend a couple hours in here easily. It has pretty much all the staples of a good aquarium. There's a shark tank, otters, an underwater tunnel, educational things, jelly fish, and some extra trendy stuff. It isn't the best aquarium I've been to by far, but it gets a 5star simply because it was way better than expected. Easily accessible by subway and you can spend a whole day here if you like malls. Watch a movie, eat some food, go to a temple across the street, go to an arcade all on a subway stop. This place is also one stop on bus from the airport for about 15 bucks. So even a great stop over spot when in Korea
  • Really great place to visit. The kids had a lot of fun and a good place to spend the day. There are places here just for kids like touching the star fish and putting your hand in the fish tank. They pay half of the parking ticket up to 3 hrs which is
  • Quite entertaining aquarium. They tried to make some exhibitions interesting with putting fishes in everday household appliances, paintings and all sort of other stuff. There's also an area with big fishes and people dressed as mermaid. The place is clean and relatively spacious.
  • It was busy, but there are plenty of smaller tanks to keep the crowd busy. There was a bit of a wait at the hands-on exhibits, but nothing unbearable. Toward the end there is a long moving walkway that you can just stand on while you look at the big fish tanks. A nice break from the walking. This is all located in a mall with plenty of shops and food. A two for one deal that could easily fill a day.
  • A busy and expensive place. We went with our five years old son. Despite the cost (about 27 dollars for an adult) we had fun there because it was actually pretty long Aquarium not an in and out. Almost everything is decorated with The octonauts characters and our son loved it.
