Please do not support the Captive Sea Lion Display. Read the history of how this started and animals that died being transported over. It seems that as long as its fun for the kids then its OK. These creatures are not here for our entertainment....More

Took my niece here on her 6th birthday and she had a blast. The show is really well done and discusses conservation too. Nice mix with the underwater caverns if you have a kid who's really into animals. Otherwise might not be totally worth it.

Grandkids (9 and 11) participated in the sea lion encounter which they very much enjoyed. Family can view easily from the outside. Staff were great!

This was included in our passes at WEM. When we went below ground to check out the marine life we were very pleasantly surprised by what we found. We all enjoyed it very much. Would definately recommend it.

Located in the West Edmonton Mall, this aquarium's underwater viewing area is tiny. I was forced to pay extra for the sea lion show which was about two hours later and I was not interested in staying around that long for it. If you expect...More

I know I'm an adult and I have seen it many times but I still enjoy it like it was the first time. Thumbs up to the staff for actually caring for the animals. They seemed to have a great connection. Wish I had taken...More

I see the mixed reviews and I agree the aquarium downstairs is tiny and underwhelming but this is in a mall and I was just looking for something with less commitment time than the big activities and this fit the bill. We loved the Sea...More
