Not very big but still well worth the visit. Be aware that there are no cafe or toilets in the exhibition area, but it is easy to go to the entrance/exit. Can get crowded, better not to bring any baby carriage inside if you can avoid it.

Helsinki Sea Life is a rather small aquarium, it is nothing compared to Sea Life in England for exampel, but it was okay. The coolest they had was a little squid. it was a cosy trip but nothing special. I wouldnt visit it again, but as said, it was okay.

It was raining and our kids wanted to enjoy a day with some activities for kids, so we decided to visit this place. It is well organized. Nice experience although not "special". Our kids enjoyed it.

Beautiful and fascinating animals with fun facts. We were eight people between the ages of 14-70 years, all of us found something to talk about for the rest of the day. A bit noisy though.
