It was very interesting for adults and even for my children (3 and 5): you can see a lot of interesting see animals and even play a small quiz (don't be disappointed for prize in the end). If you are lucky - you can see feeding of some animals - that's really something!

This centre is pretty small and can be seen in less than an hour. Even the discounted ticket purchased with a Linnanmaki wrist band made it seem too expensive. It was a good place to hide from the rain but otherwise not worth a visit, particularly if you have been to other Sea Life Centres.

A great experience for anyone who is interested in marine species. It is recommended to visit this attraction during your visit in Linnanmaki Amusement Park, due to the fact that you only pay 8€ for the entrance instead of the normal 16€.

There are among others, several different shark species, and colourful fish of coral reefs, rays, jelly fish, sea horses and many others. There are nearly 200 species and over 1000 individuals in the exhibition. Come and see them if you dare!

It's an average size, but definately bigger than aquamuseet in Stockholm. Very cozy and relaxed atmosphere (at times when not overcrowded with tourist groups) . A must see once you've in that particular part of the city.

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..
