What is your favorite sea creature? SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium showcases over 10,000 sea creatures, allowing visitors to come face to face with animals never-before-seen in Minnesota. The transformation from Underwater Adventures to SEA LIFE, complete in March 2011, made it the third U.S.-based SEA LIFE location. With the newly opened Mysteries of the Rainforest in 2012, and Jellyfish Discovery in 2010, there is always something new and exciting for guest to discover. Now with the addition of Octopus Garden in Spring of 2013, SEA LIFE Minnesota continues to feature more fascinating displays and creative hands-on activities, giving kids and families a new level of excitement and understanding of the world's oceans.
Many of our creatures are on the endangered list. They have been rescued and cannot be released into the wild or have been born and bred as part of our SEA LIFE Conservation Projects. Read below to explore some of SEA LIFE Minnesota's most popular exhibits and the animals that live within them!
