Ancient Oceans at the Sealife Centre Birmingham

One of the best things about the Sealife Centre Birmingham is that it is constantly changing. Every time we go, there is a new exhibit or theme. This means that an annual pass is really worth the money as you can visit several times in a year and see something new each time. It would make a really great birthday present if you are looking for something a bit different.

At the moment, the theme is Ancient Oceans. You can learn all about sea creatures from the past and which are still alive. It is great for dinosaur mad children. As you go around the Sealife Centre you can solve the clues and collect stickers to piece together a sea creature. This is a great way to direct the children’s attention to the facts in the exhibit.

We really loved the discovery area. You can dig for fossils in large sand trays. When you have found them you win a prize of a real sharks tooth. The girls loved this and want to start a collection of shark teeth.

As well as the ancient oceans, there are also several new exhibits. There are a few display cases where the children can go and stand and become part of the exhibit. This is a great way to get close to the sea creatures. Ancient Oceans at the Sealife Centre Birmingham

We particularly liked seeing the star fish. We did chose the wrong time of day to go. At three, it was really busy and very warm. I would definitely recommend getting to the Sealife Centre early and not carrying too many bags and coats.

There is also a lovely Finding Nemo themed exhibit. You can see a giant octopus, Dory and lots and lots of colourful clown fish.

Our favourite part as always is the underwater tunnel. It is just amazing to see giant turtles and sharks swimming overhead. It really brings all the facts you have learnt about the ocean to life. The Sea Life Centre Ancient Oceans event is on now, and ends on the 21st February 2016. With ticket prices starting from £12.50 (when booked online with a 40% discount) and under 3’s with free entry it is a perfect event to take your children to this Half Term.

We are really loving having a Merlin Annual Pass this Summer. The thing it gives is freedom. Usually, you have to plan days out so long in advance. With young children, that isn't the best thing. We have so many disappointing days out because the children were ill in...
