Place does not show it's 18 yr old age and in fact will be adding on with an new auditorium. I found the free brochure to be a little confusing until after I roamed around a bit. If there was a suggested path way I did not notice it.Displays are quite nice and good variety of ocean life.
Parking is across the street and only $8 for the day with validation before leaving the aquarium. If the hungries hit go to the cafe on the 2nd floor. Food was good and priced fairly. Avoid the 1st floor snack bar unless money is no object.

Huge variety of sea life, easy to see, very well taken care of. Plan to spend about three hours, try to catch the shows, especially the seal/sea lion expo. Fun for kids, interesting for adults, amazing beauty for everyone.

not very big....disappointing that there were no large sharks. That said everything is well maintained, employees are very nice and knowledgeable and the animals are well cared for

This was a great aquarium. So many species of fish and the sea horses and sea dragons exhibit was going on as well. It was immaculate, you can tell it’s very well taken care of. But there wasn’t really anything out of the ordinary here.

I love my aquariums and this was the first American aquarium.
It was ok but nothing spectacular. Not sure where the lorikeet enclosure fits in with an aquarium though???
Gift shop has nice stuff.
