Visit Minneapolis: SEA LIFE Aquarium at Mall of America


A visit to Mall of America means more than just shopping and dining.  There are many attractions you can visit, including the SEA LIFE Aquarium.

The SEA LIFE Aquarium is home to thousands of sea creatures big and small - from the tiniest frogs in the new Brave the Rainforest exhibit, to enormous sharks in the underwater tunnel.

Upon entering the aquarium, kids can pick up a dive log, which includes interesting information about a number of sea creatures.  The kids find a variety of stations throughout the aquarium to get a stamp, and upon completion of the dive log, they can get a reward from the gift shop!


The new Brave the Rainforest exhibit gives you an up close look at animals such as piranha, crocodiles, tarantulas, and other rainforest residents.  You can even step into the 360-degree pop-up tank in the middle of flying cockroaches! 




Throughout the aquarium you'll come across graceful jellies, giant sea turtles, and gliding rays.



Our family's favorite part of the exhibit was the 300-foot long underwater tunnel.


We saw all sorts of sea life as we walked through the tunnel.  It was quite mesmerizing to simply gaze at the sea creatures swimming all around us.  From the intriguing Midas Cichild (the fish with a bump on its head), to the numerous types of sharks, it was so neat to be that close to the amazing variety of sea life.

I thought the sawfish was pretty exciting to watch (you can see a video on Hawaii Mom Blog's Instagram).

There is even a touch pool, which the kids loved!



The SEA LIFE Aquarium at Mall of America was a great way to see and learn about animals that call the ocean and rainforest home.
