  • This is great for young kids. It was pretty busy (spring break for many schools) but fun. Bring your patience. I would've liked the person working the touch pool to be a little more knowledgeable about the critters there, but that's the science teacher in me. Sitting on the bench under the large aquarium is a must! It actually cleared out a bit and we stayed there for quite a while watching the sharks and turtles.
  • This was my first time going to an aquarium in 2017. I did not know what to expect. Once I went in they exceeded my expectation for sure! I had such a blast there!! I love the little intro that takes place before you enter! Very cute! And getting silly photos done was really awesome. I loved getting the chance to touch some of the sea life they got there. There’s a wide variety of different sea creatures. Very beautiful place. My best friend and I had a wonderful visit there!! Would definitely recommend for children and adults!
  • Great fun for kids and adults alike! Great close up views of sea life you normally would never get to see in person. The cost was reasonable at $18 for each adult ticket. The cost is more before 3pm however. It is crowded at first, but spreads out the further you go in. It took us a little more than an hour to see everything.
  • SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium is a great place to go. The entry fee is a little high but in line with other aquariums around the country. If they brought it down a little I believe they would see even more traffic and serve a greater part of the community. The exhibits are kept neat and clean on the outside. There were just two tanks they seemed to be having problems with but it was obvious they were working on it. The staff was welcoming and engaged. We had a slight difficulty at exit getting our ‘free photo’ when we were directed to go back into the line to get it. That was worked out satisfactorily. They have apparently been actively engaged in breeding and helping wounded wildlife but I did not see anything specific about that in the exhibits other than some numbers posted at entry. They have a wide variety of sea life on display and they all appeared in good health. Most of the displays had plastic plants in them. It would be nice to see more natural environments for the creatures and to examine them. The viewing tunnel was very crowded. There was no docent there and several patrons took the opportunity to rest and enjoy the tunnel while a single line file of other patrons had to navigate through along with carriages and mall baggage they might have with them. Overall this is an excellent location to visit. The children enjoyed it. I would recommend by passing the play area.
  • Really geared toward kids. My kids love the interactive games and the bubbles where they can get inside the exhibits. As an adult, I love the big aquarium and I love how peaceful it is in Stingray Bay. We had an annual pass for a year and even after that, my kids enjoy going and finding something new each time. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
