COEX Aquarium has 500 species and 40,000 underwater life forms, all in about 2,500 tons of water. The display is divided into six different groups: Deep Blue Sea for the creatures from the deep sea; Seven Seas for creatures from the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and the Red Sea and Pacific Ocean; Marine Touch allows visitors to touch sea creatures; Ocean Kingdom is comprised of sharks, stingrays, groupers, napoleons, etc.; The Inca Empire features architectural models and Amazonian World showcases a model of the Amazon jungle.
this place is located the best town in seoul surrounded by high tech buildings and local temple. aquarium itself is worth the expense. you can spend great time with your family and after then, this multi shopping mall complex ready to serve everything your need; eatery, shops for all genders all ages, accommodation all at here.
The aquarium is a little sparsely stocked, and it definately lacks the architectural wallop of similar aquariums in Osaka, Chicago, Berlin, Bangkok, etc.
Also, the English signage leaves my head spinning. Whoever proofread the signs needs some remedial English classes, quick.
This aquarium does have the world's most hyper-active otters, however, which wins two stars in my book.
A bit expensive, but worth it, I think. The set up is like a meandering trail through the Amazon for most of it, then there is a neat sitting area where you can look at a huge wall of sharks, rays and turtles. There is also a moving path that takes you under the same large tank to see the fish swim over you. It takes about an hour and a half/two hours to go through w/ a two year old (small attention span).
It is typically very crowded, even during the week with school field trips, but if you get there right at opening time (10 AM) you practically have the place to yourself. We have been twice now and plan on going again while stationed here.
One of the more kid oriented aquariums I've been to, as there are discovery type exhibits throughout.
It's a great place to go if your out and need something to do to pass time, they have a beautiful amazon setup, it's connected to the Coex Mall which gives you something else to do while you are down in seoul
