The Maretarium is a perfect size to get a good insight into Finnish fish. Interesting, well built exhibition.

Surprisingly giod

Even though the massive Baltic Sea aquarium was under repairment, all the other tanks were interesting and very much suitable for a family of a 2-year-old. The classroom setting was super sympathetic! Would recommend and will be back once the main tank is back on track.

Cool exhibition

Quite interesting place with lots of information of fishes and the Baltic Sea and other Finnish waters. It is quite small though but worth to visit, also with kids.

A great place for families

Here you can see great many fish species, but not all by the leaflet. At least I could not recognize all. The wall information papers highlighted the pollution in the seas. Anyway I was missing some of the fish species.

Finnish fish.
Jun 2018 • Family
Very interesting place if you have an interest in fish with many to see of all sizes. Various acitvities for children to do around the centre. Compared to the nearby Maritime museum it is a little expensive. Price as of July 2018 for Maretarium was 14.50 euros for adults and 7.50 for children 4-15yrs whereas the Maritime Vellamo centre was 10 euros for adults and children under 18 free.

Only fish from Finland
Jun 2018 • Family
An unusual aquarium as it only stocks fish you can catch in Finland. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit although it is quite expensive for what it is.

Worth a visit to learn more about local fish species
Mar 2018 • Friends
The Maretarium concentrates on fishes living in the Baltic sea and Finnish lakes and rivers. Therefore, someone who expects tropical fish tanks with shiny fishes might be a bit disappointed at first. However, highly interesting and educational to learn more about the fishes that exist in Finland. The feeding tour was a nice extra with someone explaining even more and answering questions.

Nice aquarium
Jan 2018 • Family
Very interesting aquarium showing just Finnish fish species. However, "Finnish" was sometimes a bit stretched... For example, they had plenty of sturgeons, even though they admitted that there are virtually no wild sturgeons left in Finland - sure, a hundred years ago Finland had plenty of those, too.

Limited interest, high entrance fee
Nov 2016 • Friends
Maretarium houses a number of smallish and one larger fish tank with local fish species. The displays are not especially spectacular and some species dominate. The entrance is costly.
