This is not a huge aquarium but very fun and my son absolutely loved the stingrays! The jellyfish were also pretty. Worth the trip for sure.

Fantastic! I'm so happy to hear that you had a fun trip to SEA LIFE! It sounds like your son loved the stingrays, and I hope he had a chance to feed them as well . . . the rays really are a guest favorite! :)

This is one of my favorite places in Minneapolis. They have a great jelly fish room and an awesome tunnel through shark infested waters! Also love the large sea turtles.

Minneapolis has some pretty awesome places, so we are VERY flattered to be among your favorites! :) I do completely agree that we've got beautiful jellies, adorable sea turtles and the most amazing shark-infested waters!

Thank you for visiting, and thank you for taking the time to share such a fantastic review!

Finally got to visit. They have a large variety of fish and some really cool ways to view (tunnels, touch ponds). The information on conservation and captive breeding was interesting. It is not huge-smaller than other aquariums we've visited and does not have any other animals. We didn't have time for behind the scenes -which might have appealed more to our teens. Overall worth a visit.

Great place to learn about and see some interesting sea creatures. Was a little crowded on a Saturday but was't too bad. Great representation of different fish and creatures. Neat facility.

If you haven’t yet, do this at MOA! Definitely a family friendly activity it’s a bit crowded on the weekends but it was still a lot of fun! We also did the VIP passes which included all day access, we got to feed sting rays and got a behind the scenes tour. The price was doable and worth it
