    Take lots of pictures & feed the stingrays! Definitely worth it.

    This place was awesome! We paid $5 to feed the Rays some shrimp. Very cool experience.

    feed a stingray! they don't have teeth; it just feels like a weird slurpy vacuum sucking shrimp out of your hand

    Nate Folkert · October 15, 2015

    each feeding bowl for the stingrays has a shrimp and a little minnow

    Pricy for what you get. Don't go during the weekend or during a school break. Find coupons!

    Worth it for the under water tunnels.

    Good for a date day. My gf had fun here. Especially when it is cold outside this is a nice alternative to bars and clubs.

    Do take the "Behind the Scenes" tour. You'll get to see the aquarium from the top and feed the fish. Sharks feeding is on Tues, Thurs and Sun.

    There are lockers on the main floor. Stash your stuff for $6 for the day and do some more shopping!

    Tickets are cheaper if you get them online ahead of time :)

    Kimberly Paul · January 18, 2014

    Very overpriced - even with coupon. Might be worth seeing if you've never been to an aquarium or if the price was discounted at least 50%, otherwise skip it.

    J Valencia · December 7, 2013

    Not worth the $20 admission..Shedd Acquarum better

    Went with my parents and had a blast with my 4yr!

    You may pet starfish and crabs and may see a giant lobster. Online, I learned that you can pay to sleep overnight in the aquarium with the sharks. Well, admissions seems rather pricey.

    10,000 aninals. I think it's a great time

    Pricey, but really great attraction. Great break in shopping.

    David Simmons · April 13, 2013
  • Debra S.

    Try to go when the tour is going to start, the place clears out quickly. Gift shop prices are unbelievable.

    Debra Staack · March 24, 2013

    So expensive....but fun. I would buy tickets online first or find coupons through the Mall

    Jessica Bailey · December 20, 2012
  • Rick H.

    If you buy tickets online, you can do a behind the scenes tour for about $5/person. Well worth it. You see any animals not in tanks and also can more easily see where the turtles and sharks hang out.

    Rick Hanton · November 24, 2012

    Jellyfish exhibit was breathtaking

    Jason Newton · November 24, 2012

    I loved it.. but $20 to get in is crazy.. wasn't in there for long

    Nikki Moore · October 22, 2012
  • Lindsay B.

    Too expensive for how short it is. MN Zoo is sure to find a coupon if you do go.

    Lindsay Butzer · July 31, 2012
  • Ben G.

    Too short for the money paid.

    Ben Grap · July 29, 2012
  • Josh K.

    Behind the scenes tour is well worth the extra $7. Look for discount admission coupons near the north entrance to the mall.

    Josh K · June 24, 2012
  • Andy Z.

    Lots of fish to see, but $20 for an adult is beyond excessive. Not to mention that my hallways at home are wider than they are here.

    Andy Zetzman · June 19, 2012
  • Carol V.

    Not a fan of fishy stuff so I won't go here But I know a lot of people who will enjoy it immensely!

    Carol Vanstee · June 17, 2012

    Joshua Young · May 19, 2012

    The annual membership is worth it if u go twice a year or more.

    Jennifer Koper · February 25, 2012

    Its annoying when its busy and a bunch of kids are running around screaming but still a good time. Go mid week and its like having it all to yourself

    Jeremy Schwalbach · January 16, 2012
  • Tammy C.

    Check out the behind the scenes tour! It's my favorite part!

    Tammy C · January 14, 2012

    Half price adult tickets online. You don't need to print them out as long as you have the number on from the tickets. You can go as many times during that day as you want :)
