We had higher expectations. This place is not as big as it seems. Aquariums showing fishes are small. The 'big' tunnel under the water has no clean glass and due to the lights its not possible to see clearly. There was no lockers available to leave small bags so we had to carry them during the walk. It was good... More

The ticket itself is quite expensive but you can get a discount if you book online or if you buy a combi-ticket with the Berggarten (Botanical Garden) right beside it. I would definitely recommend this. It is quite warm in the building and as there's also a big glass dome with tropical plants you should make use of the possibility... More

This place is just for children. Very limited varieties of fishes and other creatures. And most of the time the description did not match the fish in the tank.

We were visiting the gardens within the same complex and didn't know before we came that the Sea Life Centre was there. We bought a joint ticket for thirteen euros per adult at the Herrenhausen Gardens ticket booth which includes the sea life centre. (Sea life centre normally 17.50 euros per adult on its own), so a really good deal!... More

We've been to lots of good Sea Life places around Europe, and this wasn't one of them. Very poor quality of exhibits, didn't take very long to go around and it was really expensive. Definitely not worth the entrance fee.

I really enjoyed my visit! The pirate themed aquarium had many uniquely styled exhibits. I also got to check one off the bucket list- this aquarium had a tunnel with the fish swimming all around you!

Been here a few times as we had a Merlin Attraction card for a couple of years. Never really managed to spend more than an hour at the place though. Just doesn't seem to be that much in the place.

So we went first to the information centre and got a discount coupon of 1.5euro per person. Sea life entry fees after applying discount is 16euro per adult. Good for kids, not worth for only adults unless you are amused by fishes and tortoises. Unfortunately I missed piranha show, I think it would have increased 1star.

Took my two girls out for the day and they loved it ! Some of the centre was closed off for refurbishment which was a shame and the cafe was really small but we enjoyed ourselves.

A small aquarium but interesting with lots of different show aquariums and lots of diffent kinds of sea life. A good wander for a couple of hours and a place to occupy small children as well as adults. Use of the Merlin Card makes it a value for money place.
