We visited this sea life in a weekday afternoon. At the entrance we waited 20 minutes, but the experience was worth the wait. Much better than the sea life in London.

Having visited excellent aquariums in the States, this one was a let down. We visited in the height of tourist season so it was packed. It's definitely designed for younger kids / families, so all in all, not really our thing. And it's expensive. The AquaDom looks cool, but the 5 minute elevator ride up and down isn't all that...

Been there, seen that.... Like everywhere else. Better if you can get a cupon or berlin welcome card. Bus 100 is close by.

AquaDom was full of the same fish as we'd already seen in abundance, and the tour guides gave their talks in both languages except ours who only gave it in German, so we basically stood in a hot glass tube with some fish for a bit. SeaLife was exactly the same as Manchester SeaLife - all the tanks has the... More

I was disappointed by Sea Life, having visited far better aquariums elsewhere. It seems to be mainly aimed at kids - as I don't speak or read German, I didn't understand a lot of the information/activities on the way round although there were identification guides to the fish in English. I felt quite ill in the mirrored labyrinth just before... More

More expensive than zoo aquarium but not as good. The Aquadom was disappointing. The attraction was overpriced for what was there.

The sea life center was very basic nothing too spectacular, it definitely ranks lower than most other aquariums that I have visited in other large cities. While they do have some good exhibitions they lacked a show stopper, especially the absence of sharks was a real disappointment. I am 25 so it may of not of been aimed too much... More

Dear Jamie H. Thank you very much for your feedback. We are sorry that you were missing the sharks. Due to the existing space it is not possible to show bigger sharks than the one we have. We are happy that your children had a good time. Best Regards M.-C. Schmidt, General Manager More

We went to this a couple of days after going to the aquarium at the Berlin Zoo and the Sea Life centre was quite boring in comparison. It's largely aimed at kids and the variety of fish isn't spectacular. The most disappointing part was the AquaDom. We went up with some Irish girls and a member of staff who tells... More

17 euro for a ticket for 30 min walk through several aquariums (including the aquadom in the end of the tour), given that any other museum with huge expositions charges much less felt like a rip off. Can be interesting to visit with kids, but then again, if you don't speak german it might ne a bit inconvenient. In a... More

The AquaDom was a nice "attraction" (I haven't been in a similar place). The Sea Life and its aquariums is an average show. If you have been at the Sea Life resort in Eilat (Israel) or any major Aquarium/sea life resort elsewhere - you'll be disapointed.
