This was by far our favorite part of the trip. The hands on part and great staff made for a great learning experience that the kids thought was awesome!

The aquarium was really cool, there were lots of opportunities to touch various sea creatures and even feed the stingrays for a few extra dollars. I would have to agree with a previous reviewer to find a coupon before visiting. We foolishly paid full price and then were offered a coupon just minutes after leaving the aquarium.

Sea life Bloomington Minnesota is located inside the Mall of America. Lovely aquatic adventure for young and old. Lots of fun, learning and adventure. The aquatic life are well presented, preserved and labelled. A lovely place for children to learn and see real life what they have seen in books during biology classes.

Find a coupon before you get here. There should be no reason for you to pay full admission. We found a coupon at the Mall of America food court area. There are also coupons in many of the hotel brochure racks. This is a fun place to visit and there are a lot of cool things to see.

It was lots of fun to do the aquarium. The lines made it difficult to get to the glass to see the tanks. The price was a bit high. However it does go to a good cause of saving marine wildlife. I recommend doing the tour.

I went once to this when it was called Underwater World and it was horribly disappointing!!! So I was hesitant to try it again but I love sea creatures and I wanted to give it a try! I was blown away!! There were so many different animals in the exhibit and there are huge sharks, turtles and fish that swim... More

I've been to the Aquarium in Southern Florida that didn't even compare to SEA LIFE at the MOA. I found this aquarium to be excellent. Although smaller, it was interactive, fun and exiting for those of all ages.

We opted to check out the aquarium and glad we did. It was fantastic. My favorite part was the beautiful huge sea turtle. They have a really good variety of sharks and other species. I was surprised actually by the variety.

By far the best thing about this place... you can pet and feed sting rays. Very different experience. The other parts involve walking around and looking at aquariums... still fun though!
