Small. Maybe not worth the price you paid. But we love aquariums so it was fun to go. Right by the lego museum if that is something of interest

We have gone here a few times through out the year. For being downtown, this is really a great find. The people there are great and knowledgeable in what they are doing. They have educational shows hourly through out the entire place and I think I loved them as much as my niece.

I have been to much larger aquariums, but this place is really nice and does have great activities for the kids. I would highly recommend if you are in the area and need a nice place to take the kids.

Spent Saturday late afternoon at the aquarium. They have tons of stuff to see including a touch tank for the kids. The sting rays are huge and we got to see a pregnant sea horse. There was a stamp collections for the kids where they went to each exhibit and collected stamps. At the end of the aquarium the kids... More

My family went to this aquarium on vacation. This was a pretty cool aquarium to visit. I like how they had several activities for kids to do an the price was reasonable. I would definately visit again if I'm ever in that area.

First I need to provide full disclosure. I keep salt water aquariums and have an outdoor freshwater pond with ornamental fish. Sea Life has well maintained aquariums and diverse aquatic animals. However, for about $20 admission per person, I would have expected more than a one hour experience. That is available at some of the better aquarium stores in the... More

The Sea Life aquarium was a nice surprise. It is small and takes about 1 hour to go through. Fun activities for the kids and the aquarium tanks were beautiful, some of the best we've seen. The aquarium also sits right next to Legoland, we didn't have time to go through since the average time spent there is around 3... More

This is a perfect sized aquarium for a family with 1 to 2 hours to devote. Easy, convenient parking, too. The "Shark Tunnel" was smaller than expected BUT provided really good, intimate views of the wildlife - as did all the exhibits.

Staying overnight in KC with a couple of young kids. This was a nice find for a couple lazy Sunday afternoon hours. Not the biggest aquarium but has an attentive and enthusiastic staff. Linear design of the exhibits made for a pleasant few hours. Wouldn't budget more than a couple hours though

This is a good aquarium. Had many neat sea creatures. Sting rays were huge! Rock pool where the kids could touch starfish was neat too. Wish there were more sharks though .
