July - queue long before opening hours. Nice inside, but very little space when many visitors at the same time. Informative stands, kind and childfriendly hosts. Time spent: max 1 hour to see and explore everything. Difficult with childtroller ...no place to change dipers :-(

Nothing special but not uninteresting at all, something in between. Good for children to have a look at marine life or if the weather is not warm enough for bathing. A bit pricey, though as you can go through it in less than 30 minutes.

There are some few displays. Clean and nice aquarium, but not Worth going there. We have two kids (3 and 7) and they did not think it was any fun.

It turned out to be quite small than what I expected but kids had a good time. Displays are good and quite a few species of fish and sea animals. 👍🏼

We were there at a time were they ere rebuilding a part of the aquarium, so that was probably not the best time to take the best of it. The place is not too big, so the visit does not take long. This is good for young kids, older ones will easily get bored, unless this is their first aquarium... More

There is not much to say and that in a good way. Is perfect for families with children, the tour is not so big and the children stayed interested. There was also a Quest. At the end they receive a medal. It was fun and interesting.

The Otters Bonnie & Clyde are too God damn adorable. The Aquarium was nice but a bit small (walked through in less than an hour).

Great for kids >3 with goggles, passports and stamps to keep them entertained but also for adults. Nice little attraction with daily feeding of sea turtle, skates and Baltic Sea sharks (please note they are quite small - no sharks à la Jaws!).

Sea Life is a small aquarium near Travemünde. All in all it takes a short time (30-40') to go through the rooms with your kids. As a adult one could be a bit disappointed, but I have to say that - even if small - the Sea Life is really well done. There's a big tank with spider crabs and... More

We went to the Sea Life Centre and enjoyed the time with our little one there. Great big window with black tip reef sharks and turtle! Definitely worth spending the money for it.
