The Helsinki Sea Life seems very small and limited but it's always interesting. Sometimes it's more enjoyable to sit for a while staring at a few interesting species than see a thousand and remember none.

Was expecting something more. Place is quite small, took less than hour to walk throught it. Still, very expensive for my taste, paid 33,50 € from 1 adult and 1 under 10 years of old + small leaflet. Kids would love it for sure.

Kids absolutely loved this. It's not very big, but for small visitors it is enough. There is plenty to things to do, inside sandbox is great fun. It might be a bit boring for adults, but still quite informative and fascinating. With kids must do, but adults on their own could skip this..

Took us 45 minutes to get around and at 16.50 per head I would have expected something more. The worst sea life I have been to. Did not seem to contain any headline exhibits just a load of rubbish small exhibits that you cannot see as people crowd the tanks.

We visited on a rainy day with our boy of 4 years old. He had a lot of fun and eyes full of wonder. For parents the fun part was rather to see children so exited and curious. There was not too much to see though, we went through perhaps in 45 mins. I would rather visit e.g. the natural... More

Although Sea Life in Helsinki is very convenient attraction for kids, it offers experiences also to adults. Environment is clean and well-cared. It seems that some animals may need more space though.

This sea life centre is pretty small compared to most others around the world. When we visited, it must have been the school holidays as the centre was full of parents and lots and lots of children. That being said, it looked like the children were having great fun and were all well behaved. The staff were pleasant, and to... More

We visited Sea Life in Helsinki in the Winter, and as a fan of Aquariums I thought it'd be a fun way to escape the cold for a few hours, and it was. It was a relatively small aquarium, and some parts were closed for refurbishment, though this is understandable out of season. They had a nice variety of species... More
