Loved the Sea Life. It is not as big as Vancouver Aquarium or Marine Life in Niagara Falls, but it is just as good except for not having belugas and dolphins.There are many interesting things to look at. It is interactive and educational, and there are presentations about various creatures.

A great place, open almost all year round. I went with a toddler so things were kind of complicated. He was more interested in the vast space and in running here and there.

Great! A lot of sea creatures. You can touch the sea hedgehog, see, how they fed fishes... We spent there one exciting hour!

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€.

This is a good aquarium. This being said it is a bit pricey for its size. None of the exhibits are outside, which is a little odd. That being said, the animals that live here are great.

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!
