SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium opened in January 2015 and features about 5,000 sea creatures throughout its 35,000-square-foot facility. Families can view sharks, stingrays, eels, lionfish and other aquatic life in about 150,000 gallons of water. The Ocean Tunnel takes visitors inside the main shark tank for up close views of hammerhead and blacktip sharks, while the Interactive Touchpool lets little hands feel shrimp, sea stars, crabs, sea urchins and more.
The aquarium is located in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Discounted admission rates are available for visitors who purchase their tickets online and in advance.
