This aquarium has gotten better with the new exhibits. The "hands on" experience is fantastic and gives a greater appreciation to all ages of the life in our seas. Great place to spend some time while shopping.

Super crowded roadside quality attraction jammed into the mall. About $26 to walk thru this thing , if you drag your feet , takes about 30 minutes, not counting the gift shop ending. Walking through the overhead tank part sure.., nice but way overpriced.

This was an enjoyable experience. It is amazing that this could be part of a mall. There are fun things to see and everything is clean and well kept. Good idea to bring kids when they are rested and in a good mood.

It seems a little pricey, but when you consider what has to go on behind the scenes it makes it reasonable. People of all ages really enjoy the many different exhibits and the interactive options. They have just added a new exhibit too.

We went here as part of an overnight trip to the MOA. The shopping is great, but sometimes you need a break, the aquarium is a nice place to take that break. This is a nice aquarium even if you're not at MOA to shop.

We took the grandkids to Underwater Adventures at the Mall of America! They enjoyed learning about the plants and sea life that live in a mall. Especially the sharks and stingrays! We will definitely be back to visit the next time we're in the Cities.

This place was so full of so much creatures to see first hand. The way it's built and the atmosphere is just stunning. First time visit is always the best. Great for kids and visiting families. I very much enjoyed it.

See sharks, and other sea life swim over you while you go through the tunnel. A great experience, especially on a cold, snowy day in Minnesota.

Visited here in December and again in May. They just opened a new area with "touch pools"! They were wonderful for the kids and the adults. Looks for deals on tickets before you come. We truly enjoy this kind of attraction, but it is small so don't plan to be here all day. Our kids practically run through it each... More
