  • Information
    The COEX Aquarium is spread out over a large area and showcases no less than 40,000 sea creatures, which come from 600 different species. The aquarium is unique in Korea because it has been designed around the theme of “Water Journey”. On entering the museum, visitors will embark on an adventure that follows water on its journey from the high Andean mountains, through the Amazon tropical rainforest to swamps, rivers, seashores, and finally to the depths of the ocean. Visitors will get an in-depth look into some of the world’s fascinating underwater creatures.

    # The Ocean Kingdom
    The Ocean Kingdom contains a huge tank filled with 2,000 tons of seawater, in which a large number of sharks, stingrays, turtles, and a shoal of silver-colored fish live in almost exactly the same conditions as the ocean.

    # Doctor Fish Exhibition
    Learn about the Doctor Fish experience by putting your fingers in the water and having the fish nibble on them. It's a tingly, unique feeling and it gets rid of your dead skin.

    # Kid’s Aquarium
    Here, children can come face to face with their favorite sea creatures. They can see and even touch frogs, yellow tailed anemone fish, blowfish, and gecko lizards, and have fun learning about life under the sea.

    # Fish in Wonderland
    This amusing exhibition takes fish out of the sea and straight into visitors’ daily lives. Here visitors can see fish living in a traffic light, postbox, refrigerator, computer, washing machine, television set, sink, toilet bowl, bed, and telephone booth.
