  • I was very impressed with the tanks and species. I liked it better than the Toledo Zoo Aquarium, but not the cost. We picked a good time to go with no crowd. I'd hate to be there when it's busy.  more »
  • Very nice, able to spend an hour to enjoy. Very crowded with rude people that cut right in front of you. But other then that it's nice  more »
  • We celebrated my grandson's birthday at the Sea Life Michigan Aquarium. The day was relaxed and entertaining for all four kids and six adults. From the nine year old who read the informative plaques a...  more »

  • My young son (age 2 ) had a good time. My family truly enjoyed our time at Sea Life Aquarium. We visited on March 11, 2017 for the 3:00 pm session. The lines seemed long but the staff ushered customers through the line with ease and no confusion. At one point a manager walked down the line and asked if people in line was there early for there time spot and if so would they get out of line for the folks that were there at the correct time for their session. I can see how this even can be pricey if you have small children over the age of two. All in all the experience was nice and I would definitely‚Äč come back again with my children. After we left Sea Life and was headed home the line reduced significantly to a trickle. The later sessions around the 5 pm hour is a great time to go if you want to avoid the long lines. You will save about 6.00 bucks if you go to one of the later time slots starting at 5:00 p.m.
  • Beautiful place! My only complaint is that if you don't have a membership, you have to wait for them to let members in first. Even if you arrived before they did.
  • It was cool but I guess I expected more for the price we paid. It was very crowded and we were rushed from one station to the next. My 4 year old liked touching the starfish and we got a cool picture but that was probably the first and last trip we'll make to this aquarium. We had more fun for less at the aquarium at the zoo.
  • Not bad. Price is a little high for the amount of stuff in there. It was crowded because the better exhibits people stood at taking pictures for several minutes. Couldn't do the starfish table because so many people were already in line waiting. The play place at the end is a really nice touch but the age range is not reasonable...4-12 year olds in the same small area is not safe, had to remove my 4 year old from the area because the older kids were screaming and playing rough. After reading other reviews I see we could have gone back through a second time. Might be something you should mention at the purchase of tickets.
  • We took our 4 kids last June and it was an awesome experience for us! We are going again tomorrow and maybe even doing the behind the scenes tour. I could just stare at the sharks all day long! Also yes keep in mind the price is to help pay the staff who care for these animals and they need to eat too along with the upkeep of their surroundings :) thank you. Just under a 2 hour drive for us but we cwn spend all day in the mall as well. Everything is in one place
