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. )))))

I liked visting this aquarium a lot! I have been to many others around the world so was not expecting anything I have not seen before, but I was very impressed by this place! 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

nice place to spend an hour or less. Not as big as the aquariums we are accustomed to, but not bad! Staff was friendly & helpful.

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

Kids had a blast, it was a great weekend afternoon outing. I would not recommend visiting without kids though as it is a bit crowded, and there aren't a lot of unique things to see if you've been to any other aquarium.

First off, I am easily impressed when it comes to zoos. I like them, no doubt about it. But Sea Life in Helsinki was not only ridiculously expensive (16€ as a student), but also simply not worth half of the money. The animals you can see are not at all that exotic, apart from one or two exceptions, and after... More

My 5 year old loves this place. It's rarely crowded & has some great tanks. There's a lot of interesting information & a quiz for the kids, that's regularly updated & a medal at the end. They have feeding times with comentary & you can go round as many times as you like.I bought an annual pass we go so... More
