It took us one hour to go through Sea Life, but we had our hands stamped for re-entry. So we walked through the Mall of America for a while and then came back and went through it a second time. The coolest exhibit had to be the sting rays. We paid $3 to feed the sting rays some shrimp. At... More

One of the best aquarium I have been to. The seahorse and the scenery in the aquarium are great and easy find.

They have tanks to touch various things, including stingrays (you can feed them for extra... was quite an experience). They have a huge shark tank you walk through with sea turtles and other large...

Great family fun love. The fish going over your head especially the sharks was amazing. The jellyfish exhibit is like nothing I've ever seen before. The touch pools are great. Remember not to use your flash on the camera.

Sealife aquarium was very interesting. You could take you time to really enjoy it. It was one of the better aquariums I've been to.

You can get a few bucks off buying tickets online, i just wish they didn't make you pick your visit date. It is a little expensive for the time, but they say they're into conservation and that's worth it. The tunnels were amazing. I could have stayed in there for so long. The sea horses were also cool.

The top reason to visit this version, petting the sting rays. They have done an awesome job with this exhibit. The touch pool was okay. It was huge, but too deep for most children. The touching is really just of sea anemones. The jellyfish exhibit is visually stunning. They also have several of the walk through tanks that have different... More

I took my youngest son to Sea Life and we both enjoyed the visit. Plenty of interactive exhibits and we really liked walking in the tunnel through different tank environments. Sharks, jellyfish, sturgeon, crabs, alligators, turtles, and fish galore! Plan for two hours at a leisurely pace for just the normal visit without the behind the scenes tour.

Had a great time..we were on vacation at mall of America and wanted to check out the sea life aquarium. Glad we did. Purchased tickets there at a decent price. Note you can find discount coupons at various kiosk through out the mall to save some money. The entrance is near l. L. Bean. There's lots to see and you... More

The whole aquarium experiences is based on Dives. There are different dive stations. My favorite is petting the friendly sea ray.
