Typical aquarium. Doesn't seem to display as wide a variety of sea life as others do. I saw one octopus which was very active. No stingrays, eels or large fish. Plenty of corals, urchins and anemone.

A Morning at the Aquarium

We took our grandson (18 months) to visit the aquarium. The aquarium offered plenty of exhibits to keep his attention. The seals and the talk about the seals kept his interest. The museum was very clean and easy to navigate.

We had a few hours to burn while we were in the area and decided to try out the aquarium. There were four of us and we were all really pleased with the experience and glad we went. The exhibits were nicely laid out and were quite interesting.

The aquarium was on the smaller side, but there was still plenty to see. The otters and the seals came right up to us which was fantastic 😀

Aquarium was just ok. Didn't realize 75% of it was open to the outdoors so I was cold. Aquarium was mainly fish. They had a seal and a couple otters but that's it.

Fun day, cool exhibits.
Sep. 2021
We enjoyed our day at the aquarium. It is smaller than some others we have visited, but located in a great spot on the waterfront. We were unable to get a time ticket, but when we stopped by, we learned they have a stand-by line for entry as well. We only waited about 15 minutes to get in. The exhibits/aquariums inside were beautiful. We liked the large tank at the entry and watched an interactive presentation with a diver. The touch tanks and smaller exhibits inside were so nice. We especially enjoyed the exhibits in the back part, with the marine mammals. We used the City Pass, which made it affordable to go.

Very small aquarium based on expectations of surroundings. The city pass made this very affordable. I have been spoiled by the GA aquariums size.

Small Aquarium. Nice stop to kill time. Younger kids might be more entertained.
Aug. 2021 • Family
It was a small aquarium, fun to walk around and kill time but nothing like the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, Oregon that my kids are used to so it wasn’t very exciting or educational for them.

Expensive for mediocre
Sep. 2021 • Family
The aquarium isn't very big especially for a city on the water. The octopus and jelly fish were cool but over all a mediocre aquarium. I think I've been spoiled by the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga.

It is expensive for what it is.

Very nice aquarium. Nice variety for a small place. About an hour tops needed. Easy to get to...only bad is the signage for the exhibits was lacking for me! Exhibits were explained on walls or video screens. Hard for me to wait for the right explanation and not cause a total back up of other patrons. With social distancing, I felt I was slowing things down. I like at point pictures of fish so I just see what I need and move on. But a. Very good experience.
