Everyone enjoyed the aquarium. A huge variety of sea life and a learning experience also. Loved the calmness after shopping. Definitely recharged and ready for more shopping afterwards. The underwater aquarium tunnel was amazing. Highly recommend

Great interactive aquarium. The behind the scenes is definitely worth doing. The aquarium is so convenient being inside the Mall of America.

Visited on a very busy night. But very enjoyable. Larger attraction that I imagined. A little expensive but we did enjoy it. Got a little dizzy looking at fish while walking in the tunnel. But they had an amazing display of fish.

A few months ago I went to sea life in Arizona. Minnesota's sealife was so much better. The stingray Bay allowed you to get up close to the rays and the tunnel way by far my favorite.

My sister and I attended the Sea Life Minnesota attraction during their Fins and Flights tour. While you look at sharks and rays, you get to try different beers! There is no better way to see fish than while you're drinking and sampling different beers of the area. Very calming attraction!

Seeing the fish completely surrounding you makes you feel like a fish yourself. The jellyfish room is undescribable. There is an area where kids can touch a few of the sea creatures such as sting rays. Makes for a great day trip.

We loved feeding the rays, seeing the turtles, and watching the sharks. The feeding shows are really interesting.

It was very fun. Petting the stingrays was amazing. Very interactive and some great things to learn about the sea life that they have. I'd highly recommend for people to visit.
