The price is not to bad ranging from from 13-16 euro. Limited space though so be sure to go when you would least expect others to go. Really fit for little kids though as it is designed for them to have a good time.

The Sea Life, Helsinki is a bit small, but the variety of species is enough to keep especially the kids interested. The recently added king crabs crown the visit. Educational parts of the exhibition are well planned and staff is nice and knowledgeable. Located right next to the Linnanmäki amusement park.

My tip is to get there early because it can get crowded at times. Like people say, it's not a very big place. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and the place is well kept. I still think the entrance fee is a bit high. Take your time and educate yourself - there might be a time when the... More

I have visited many Sea lifes in Europe and even the Helsinki is quite small they have been able to create the same experience than in the larger ones - like in Barcelona. If a cold and rainy day go there before 12 at noon.

Located besides Linnanmaki Amusement Park, we took tram number 3 and got off at Linnanmaki Stop. Family; 2 adults and 4 children costs EUR75, multiple entries are permitted within the same day. Collections are good with some species we haven't seen before. We attended the electric eel feeding session and the staff is kind enough to share explanations in English.... More

This was a nice trip outside the centre on a train however be prepared to get a little pushed out by children and there parents. But it was nice to see the various fish and the guys doing the demonstrations with the stings rays were brilliant

It was ok, nothing special. A really small octopus, some small charks. Some rock fishes and some cool crabs. And a lot of different fishes. We took it slow and was done in 40 minutes. It is not worth the entrence!!

Helsinki sea life is a nice aquarium but a bit on the small side. The best features of this place is the staff - they are very attentive and is interacting a lot with the visitors.

A well set out and attractive exhibitions. Our 3 year old enjoyed it. A lot of the tanks required us to lift her up which is annoying. You can get a complimentary pushers for children to sit in, but I don't recommend it as you need to be lifting them in and out to see in the tanks frequently. Free... More
