Great place to take the family. I took my niece, and she really liked it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was plenty of different aquatic animals. It was fun and educational. We loved it.

Although not a huge place, Sea Life Kansas City has lots to see and appreciate. It’s located in Crown Center and is accessible by the streetcar. Weekends are quite busy, but it’s roomy enough the sea life can be easily viewed.

It was enjoyable but the admission was $20/person and our 1yo was free. The halls were cramped and hard to navigate with a stroller. Save your money and go to the Omaha Zoo there is a great aquarium there.

My husband and I enjoyed our trip to Sea Life. We went in the middle of the week during January and it was practically empty. The theming of the exhibits and viewing areas is top notch. Our favorite was the Carribean area that felt like...More

While we do feature sharks, sting rays and octopus; SEA LIFE Aquariums around the world do not feature any marine mammals such as whales.
