A small sea life museum. The lecture and feeding of the electric eel well worth the entry price...could have used some more hands on exhibits

It isn't so large but they have a well displayed collection of fish and other species, including data on most endangered ones. At different hours (displayed there) they have open feeding with live explanations in Finnish and English, including the great tank with sharks and...More

Sea Life franchise, perhaps a bit smaller than elsewhere but great experience nevertheless. Next to Linnanmäki amusement park.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback! Sometimes during summer season it might get crowded in the exhibition due to the larger number of visitors during holidays! Have a nice summer!

The price is not to bad ranging from from 13-16 euro. Limited space though so be sure to go when you would least expect others to go. Really fit for little kids though as it is designed for them to have a good time.

I have visited many Sea lifes in Europe and even the Helsinki is quite small they have been able to create the same experience than in the larger ones - like in Barcelona. If a cold and rainy day go there before 12 at noon.
