Its a very nice aquarium a bit small but being inside the Mall of America it great activity for the kids. My girls really enjoyed the salt water tunnel with the sharks. I was disappointed that they didn't have much of a fresh water exhibit....More

This aquarium is a lot of fun. Being close to the sea life is the chance of a lifetime. I particularly like the turtles, but we're probably the same age and the same speed. It was all good and I'd definitely go back.

The aquarium was well worth the money. We started off in the wading area, where the kids were able to touch things under the sea. It wasn't too crowded and easy to move through. We had a chance to see the Stingrays up close. And...More

The aquarium was very nice and had a wide variety of sea life on display. It was located right inside the Mall of America. I would recommend a visit.

One of the best shark tubes I have seen and great variety of exhibits. We combined the Smaaash combo ticket which was a great value. I lived there for years and never visited but well worth it. Good break from the mall.More

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!
