Excellent aquarium. Quite large. Lots of exhibits. Kind of pricey, but they do have a military discount. Overall, a nice place.

Visited the Aquarium with a friend. We just loved it, and only hoped we would have had more time to spend there, unfortunately we were only passing through LA. It was definitely still worth a visit. The only thing we would hope to be better is the signs, sometimes we found it a bit confusing to figure out where we should be going next. We visited in the morning during a week which also seemingly was a good time for a visit as there were not too big crowds to get in the way of seeing things. Lots to see there.

My husband and I love to visit aquariums when traveling. This is now one of our favorites. We loved the range of animals and sea life and the hands-on experiences. My favorite part was feeding the lorikeets. We did find the map a bit confusing and the photo that was taken of us was not good - it showed all the renovations in the background, so we did not purchase it. They might want to consider using a backdrop for future pictures.

I went to this aquarium, because I saw that they had a seahorse and sea dragon promotion. I have never seen seahorses or sea dragons, and I was pleasantly surprised with the quantities that they had at this aquarium. It was a magical experience! I probably would go to this aquarium again if I was in Long Beach.

I was looking forward to visiting this aquarium but was left feeling disappointed. It did not have the wow factor that I was expecting. However, kids would love it.

There were plenty of staff on hand to explain and answer questions. Also several interactive areas where you could touch live creatures.
