A bit pricy. Too overcrowded. Liked the tropical part most.

You can see everything in one day , this is really a hands on for touching and seeing sea life up close. If you have children they will lean so much in a short time about our oceans and wildlife.

The reason I don't rate it higher, is because I am comparing it to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It isn't a bad aquarium, and it is close to home, but when you step out, you see Long Beach.

It is well maintained and had lots of things to look at. My granddaughter enjoyed the experience. It is just the right size to be able to see the all the exhibits.

Very good aquarium and a good size for a half-day (or a bit longer) visit. The lorakeet forest is lovely, and I could spend an hour there feeding and photographing the birds. No killer whales shows, but plenty of other show to keep you interest.

We visited the Aquarium last March and really really enjoyed it. It was larger and much more professional than I thought it would be and it is worth a visit. I was quite impressed with the amount of marine wildlife that was displayed.
