We attended this aquarium having received discounted coupons while shopping in the mall. I will say that I am very glad we received discounted entries. The aquarium was neat and people were very nice, BUT it took us less than a half hour to get...More

We love aquariums and couldn't pass up an opportunity to see what Discovery Channel named, "World's Best Shark Exhibit on the Planet!" I thought it was priced high for what you get. We had coupons for $5 off per ticket, but it still was expensive....More

My 22 year old daughter and I couldn't get enough of this wonderful place with many varieties of fish including the big acrylic tube where sharks swim over your head and the jellyfish, seahorse, and stingray exhibits are amazing. This is a must see.

This is the only aquarium we've been to that has an actual octopus...apparently they aren't long-lived. This guy is little but so cool. Add in that we saw a Manta Ray pool filled with rays, a tunnel with fish, turtles and sharks and a little...More

We visited the Mall of America and planned to do all the attractions. I had a $5 off coupon each ticket price, which I feel are overpriced for the size of the aquarium. It was neat and we all had fun, but it's smaller than...More

The primary reason I went to this was because it is located in the Mall of America. The prices seemed to be a bit high for what this aquarium offers. If you go here, be sure to check the areas around the mall because there...More

It was set up kind of funky, of course...it is in a mall. There were neat exhibits and plenty of creatures, it just seemed small for the price. I've been to many aquariums and it didn't even take us an hour to see everything.

This is our second venture to the aquarium. This time we couldn't touch the sting ray's so the kids were a bit disappointed about that but they love walking through the tunnel to view all the different fish. We purchased out tickets online which saved...More

Sea Life is an awseome adventure. A must when at the MOA in MN. Good experience for close up looks at all types of sea creatures. Very educational. A must see and the best attraction at MOA And they do parties. Call for reservations.

It took about an hour and a half. Take your time, away from the shopping crowds, and explore.

Is the behind the scenes VIP tour and feeding sting ray with the xtra money? General admission would be about $45 for a family of 4 or I'm looking at $110ish for the vip package. Is it worth the $?

Honestly I believe it is. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was amazing to hear his experiences about the facility and animals. I am a wildlife major and truly felt as though even I learned quite a bit!

I read somewhere that after 4PM the ticket prices are less. Now I can't find anything about it. Is that everyday? Do you need a coupon or to do anything special besides showing up at 4 and what is the cost?

I know that Nickelodeon Universe does discounted tickets after 4 p.m., however I haven't heard of SeaLife MN doing the same thing. There are always coupons available in the mall for a few dollars off the admission price... More
