Geared for young families with children (which we weren't). Small windows to view fish. The entire interior is Dark with cave like coral walls with colorful paint. Colored lighting, distracting music adding to the chaos within the narrow walkways and small rooms and crowded spaces made even more narrow and crowded with all the children's strollers. (we like kids, just not the tight space allotted for guests) One could NOT leisurely walk through...definately not for the claustrophobic or those not tolerating sensory overload well. We went on the behind the scenes tour. Not much to see in the single hallway we toured, basically and the guide seemed to only know what was on the script, but the white walls and freedom from the canned music was a nice break. We will go to the local (Preuss Pets in Lansing, MI) pet store in the future for a more relaxing and informative time. Disappointed. Glad we went before taking grandkids or suggesting it to friends.

largest aquarium in Michigan. We enjoyed the various displays of sea life & we watch the feeding of the sting rays. Very family friendly, their were areas where kids can climb safely under tanks & they appear as if they are in the tanks. Kids were having a blast.

We recently visited Sea Life on March 18th, 2018. We had a great time! This aquarium had quite a few exhibits, my 4-year-old loved it. It held it's own in comparison to larger aquariums that we have visited (such as Ripleys aquarium in Toronto, ON).
We purchased the combo ticket with LegoLand-great savings. We would definitely visit again if we were in the area. I would not make another 5 hour trip from Ontario to do so tho. My son especially loved that they stamped our hand for admission with "invisible ink" that could only be seen with a UV light. He told everyone when we got home that he had an "invisible tattoo". Too cute! Staff was friendly.

There was a lot to see in different areas. Had a touching pool and was able to watch the sting ray get feed.

Even after ordering tickets in advance, and showing up at our assigned time, we were corralled in to the exhibit with like 10 other groups, and having small children with me, and a stroller, were rushed through while there were WAY too many people in each space at the same time.
