With very little open on New Year's Day in Munich, we decided to visit the Sea Life Centre. The admission price is a little steep for what it is - 16 Euros each. The atmosphere is excellent and the tanks are all in immaculate condition, all the fish look healthy which is something I always look for at places like... More

Was quite entertaining for my 2.5 yrs old boy. Would not be my priority in Munich, but with time or on a wet day, this is a good choice.

If you have extra time in Munich with your kids or just a couple take a 2 hours break and enjoy the silence of the water and the animals. It is really amazing and very nice. Enjoy.

Thanks to tripadvisor reviewers & reviews, I was warned ahead of time. Only go if you have free or extremely discounted tickets and if you have a very young child who gets excited to see any kind of fish, and are close to olympia park. The zoo (Tierpark Hellabrun) is otherwise a much better offering, even on a rainy day... More

Fun for little kids. Not impressive for adults and EXTREMELY overpriced. you get through the whole place in 30 minutes which makes 44euros for 2 adults and one 4yr old a crazy amount of money for that short of time ($60) book your tickets online for the 40% off afternoon ticket otherwise you'll be disappointed by price for what you...

Nice decoration for fish to stay. Feel so impressive to see such a big turtle :D what a shame to have a Chinese face, the staff was a bit rude to treat us when we try to touch the sea stars in the area that allow us to touch the sea animal. I understood some mainlander may really take them... More

Not really much to complain about what sea life they have or don't have (selection very limited in comparison to aquatic life that can be found at many of Germany's zoos) - but the aquarium is built underground. It is dark and cramped with extremely narrow areas, practically single file. Please remember many German people cannot find the patience to... More

Really disappointing experience. Not much variety. If you visit the Munich zoo aquarium, there is not anything else, really important to see.And I agree with arpitab, my son gad a better and most memorable time feeding ducks and swans at the Olympia Park. And they have a "cafe", with nothing to offer. Definitely a waste of money and time.

At the counter at Sea Life you can buy Lego World tickets and if you do so you enter sea world for free. We were planning to visit lego anyway so we did that. I think for smaller kids it is not so bad but if you visited other seal life places than you'll probably be dissappointed. Don't expect too... More
