SEA LIFE® Minnesota Aquarium

The enormous Mall of America outside the Twin Cities is big enough to contain many things, including an amusement park and the 1.2-million gallon SEA LIFE® Minnesota Aquarium.

The aquarium has been entertaining visitors since it opened in 1996. The space has undergone several changes and renovations since then, but one of the most popular features remains the 300-foot-long clear tunnel through which people can walk with water (and sea creatures) surrounding them.

There are both saltwater and freshwater habitats at the aquarium, with a variety of sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, lobsters, catfish, octopuses, and more. One tank contains many different kinds of jellyfish, while another has six kinds of seahorses. There is a touch pool, a tank with live coral, and a rainforest exhibit with animals like caiman, piranhas, and poison dart frogs.

The aquarium offers different ticket options, from general admission up through a “VIP Experience” that includes a “behind-the-scenes” tour and a Stingray Adventure feed experience.

SEA LIFE Aquarium Minnesota Admission Ticket at Mall of America
Fun aquarium experience for the whole family. Fun activity sheets for the kids and adults to keep them aware and learning as we go through. Well kept and clean. We also got to see some bugs which are not water creatures and read some fun facts along the way.We appreciate the penny press souvenir right outside the entrance. We love it! Will definitely visit again👍😍

My granddaughter and adult children had a fabulous time. We did feel like we were being pushed along to quickly and were surprised when we were finished it was only a half hour. Comment from adult children that it was kind of spendy for a half hour.

My bf had an amazing time it was the first time either of us had ever been to an aquarium. The tunnel was a bit shorter than expected and it went fast for 60 dollars

There were no employees to be found anywhere through the experience. When we tried to scan our tickets the machine wouldn’t accept them and again no employees could be found.
