  • Enough to see when you want to get out of the cold. There are good signage to each exhibit. Before the entrance and inside there are lockers for storing your bags.  more »
  • The venue is in the COEX Mall, a shopping mall you go to shop comfortably, I'm looking for is called a similar per-o chia nay world? If the animal world under the sea abounds with system.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • An amazing collection of ocean life in one place. I had to use force to separate my husband from the aquarium with coral and aquarium with sharks :)
  • Beautiful modern aquarium. The tour takes about one hour. A lot of specimens to see. The set up is quite imaginative. Highly recommended, after a tour of the mall.
  • Excellent Aquirium in a beautiful Mall 'Coex'. The Aquarium has great variety of fish to observe.
