We went with our two children who are 3 and 6 and they loved it. They loved that they got to touch the anemone at the bigginning of the tour. Mom and dad’s favorite were the sharks. 👍🏻 I recommend buying the tickets online before...More

I was shocked at the entrance fee to the aquarium. Very pricey for what they actually offer. It took several minutes for the girl to take my money and give me a ticket, because she was alone and untrained for this computer. The entire visit...More

there are so many species to amaze. children typically won't notice that the area is a little scant for the mental health of the aquatic life. children can touch anemones, and feed manta rays and watch jelly fish in glow lights.

Something fun to do anytime of the year! Lots of great sea-life to view and learn about on your visit. Located lower level of the mall. Fun for all especially kids who are tired of shopping.

Our family went on a Friday morning. We absolutely loved going. The animals were mesmerizing, and the facts were extremely worthy. We loved the shark exhibit, and can’t wait to bring our future daughter there.

This is a must see when traveling to the Mall of America. There are several exhibits that are hands on and you can touch different fish along with ocean foliage. All kids big and little would love it. Price is also very reasonable and encouraging...More

The had interactive exhibits, a stingray feeding station and a touch pool. Look for the saw shark. Most aquariums don’t have this species of shark on display. We went at 6pm Thursday evening during the Christmas break and had the place to ourselves

Got there at opening 930am, no large crowd. As we were finishing the aquarium it was getting more crowded. Tickets for 11am behind the scenes tour. We had Phil, tour was informative. We had finished the aquarium prior to tour, so left after tour.

We watched the sharks being fed and spent some time with the manta ray pool, watching them. It's not a huge place, but there is a lot to see. My kids are teens and we took our time so about an hour and a half. There aren't... 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!
