It's worth visiting if you really don't have much planned for the day in Seoul. Lots of coffee shops and a restaurant on one of the top floors.

There is an art gallery in the last story of the bulding (63, thats where the name comes from). Fair paintings, that are outshine by the best view of the han river, preferably at night, Be aware that there is a 20USD$ charge fir using the elevator.

We went to the 63 Building walking from Yeouido station. It took us about 20 minutes but we did get a bit lost! We bought the 3 exhibition ticket so went to the aquarium, the wax museum and the art exhibition. The aquarium was nice, lots of interesting and pretty animals but they were keeping four blue tongue skinks in a vivarium together so the poor little guys had attacked each other so that was a bit sad.

The article exhibition was Europe when we went. It was nice but we weren't there for the art - the views were fantastic! Really nice skyscraper to go up. It will be even better when you can see Lotte World Tower from it!

The wax museum was amazing in a crap way. Marilyn Monroe looked decidedly piggish. Super fun to look around.

We had a great day out, the buildings were beautiful and the staff were great.

The 63 building is a rather well-designed building on Yeouido island. The gold exterior is radiant during sunny days, and the structure is now a familiar locale on the Han river. As far as modern skyscapers, the 63 building does not stand out for its height, at least internationally.

Visitors can either enjoy the building from the river, as river cruises are widely available in Seoul. Or visitors that are generally more interested in skyscapers and "view points" can travel to Yeouido, and see the 63 building up close. There is a pleasant (small) sculpure garden on the ground level. The fee to see views are a bit expensive, but on clear days, the view is nice. Keep in mind that while the view is enjoyable, it cannot be compared to Hong Kong or New York.

Take the lift up (12.00 Won), and get a glimpse on how large Seoul really is. You have a very nice view from there. But do not pay money for the wax museum, the figures there are very bad, not comparable to Madam Toussauds! The aquarium is ok.
