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.

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.

# The Penguins’ imaginary playground
In the COEX Aquarium, visitors can meet the Humboldt penguins that normally are only found in Peru and Chile in South America.
