We had so much fun. My wife and I went to the aquarium on Sunday Aug 13. It was a bit of money for the tickets but we loved it. I took lots of pictures

SEA LIFE WAS SO FUN! We saved money by buying tickets online and you can save an additional amount with a code like TV or Shark or something- at the beginning there is a touch tank and then they scan your tickets and you can...More

A bit overpriced, but then we're finding that everything in the Mall of America is jacked up at least 50% over anywhere else. We loved the tunnel, loved the ray pool and the jellyfish, but found that it was over pretty quickly. For a break...More

Loved it - so cool that's it's right in the Mall of America. Pricing was high. I liked walking through the tunnel with the sea life right above you - it felt like you were swimming with the animals.

Honestly I believe it is. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was amazing to hear his experiences about the facility and animals. I am a wildlife major and truly felt as though even I learned quite a bit!
