#4 of 19 in Things to do in Oberhausen
A home for injured seals and other endangered sea life, marine sanctuary SEA LIFE Oberhausen is open to the public. During peak hours, the aquarium allows only 30 visitors at a time into each viewing area, so visit right at opening to avoid these crowds. All the tanks have inside viewing areas that make a great escape from chilly, rainy weather. Book a ticket online to save time at the door so you can head straight to the seals, turtles, and penguins.

  • The building appears to be relatively small as such, but it was offered much on the m ², amazing, interesting facts; Nature conservation organization has been granted m.W. too much space.

  • If one gets a visit, who wants to meet Oberhausen SEA LIFE in Oberhausen is an appropriate address. But soo excited the guest will not be. We were twice in the sea life. Briefly after the opening years ago and even now. Statement: nothing's changed, i.e. it must be urgently made a redesign. Only on the small outdoor area, we have seen cute Otter. You can but in the Imperial garden look better... and above all free. The SEA LIFE is small, winding, dark and old. There were many families with young children there. That is also the target group, in my opinion. I would no longer go there anyway. There is no feeling of Wau. Perhaps it is also because we have seen so many great aquariums on our travels. Since this SEA LIFe can not keep unfortunately.

  • We have waited a long time to come. Otherwise it's very nice there. Many fish but also many guests. Law is expensive.

  • It could be because I am comparing it with the Sea Life in London but there nothing much to see here. It is really not worth to pay full normal price here. Find coupons in InterNET before coming here because here at the till they will never be kind to say that they have special offers for families or groups and they do not care of a 3 year old child, I had to pay same price as for adult.
  • It was wonderful experience! Unfortunately it was too short ! Should have taken more time enjoying the tour !
  • Beautiful, well organised with several interactive activities for children. The food at the restaurant is very good.
  • Great place for visit with children . Must see !!
  • The aquarium is clean and tidy. Very nice fish and the water quality seems to be OK as the fish are swimming around actively with spread fins. However, two fish are too big for the aquarium that they are in: salt water eals and the catfish. Those should be transferred to a bigger aquarium.
