We spent quite some time at the Sea Life Helsinki, once we went through exibition, there was the option of starting over - and we did. It was fun, seeing stuff for the second time. Very few people were there, so we had lots of time to look at the beautiful fish and sealife. Personell was very nice and helpful... More

We visited this with my godson. It is a good and interesting place which offers a lot to kids. The personnel is very experienced and just waiting to share their knowledge. Overall a good experience, however when comparing this to the aquarium in Atlanta this is completely outshone. But then again, Atlanta has the largest single tank in the world... More

Nice lay-out, fun.. Good gift shop. Kids love it, definately worth a visit! The best is the tunnel where you can walk and fish (including sharks) swim on top and around you.

Having nothing else to do on late evening of the second day in Helsinki we went to Sea life. The complex is very small, with a shortest sea tunnel I've ever seen. The big attraction they advertised, the octopus was closed for renovation, water tanks very small, in one word...boring.

Located next Helsinki amusement park Linnanmäki, Sea Life is built in fact underneath it. Upon arrival you have to climb several stairs or take elevator to cashier. After that you have to descend stairs to enter area. At beginning I missed information by the entrance on action hours, as every full hour they feed certain fishes and tell about them.... More

Right next to Helsinki's largest amusement park, SEALIFE is very, very entertaining. Well-built............well-designed...........a huge array of various forms of sea-life. Loved it )))))))))))))))))) A bit expensive, but it's worth at least one visit. )))))

We saw the feeding of little octopus, which was fascinating, the staff explained many facts about octopuses I had never heard of. They also had a... More

I loved that there was the staff always at the sight, so you could go and ask, if there was something you wanted to know. They knew their animals well. I was expecting the place to be larger with more tanks, but it was quite small. Don't plan on spending the whole day here, took us about 3 hours to... More
