Visited with our 10-month-old son. He doesn't care much for the zoo at home, but this was neat because he could get up pretty close and see what was going on in the tanks. He enjoyed watching the jellyfish (there are tons and tons of different species of jellyfish! I had no idea how many!) and the sea lions. The touch tanks would be awesome for an older child. We opted to check the stroller at the door, and it was good because 1) it allowed him to get closer to the displays, and 2) the crowd was huge on a Sunday and would have made maneuvering the stroller a bit difficult. The gift shop is beautiful and full of interesting and unique things, but expensive (as expected).

Super-duper fun. The exhibits are very well-thought out. They are very large with a lot of fish and other animals to see. We enjoyed the touch pools and the petting a jelly-fish. The otters are cute and you can pet a shark. There is even a zebra shark! (a cool shark). It is close to lots of restaurants and shops so you can do something else after visiting. You can get your hand stamped to come and go for the day.

Our visit to the Aquarium was part of our return journey following a cruise and I found it the perfect end of 17 days away from home. The staff are welcoming and friendly with a wealth of subject knowledge and judging by the number of families enjoying the day we were not the only ones to think so.
A very fitting end to our holiday

While in long beach we took in the aquarium was a fun and interesting time. There was lots to see and do. With tanks set up so you could feel the exhibits.
They had seal and sea-lion shows and divers feeding the fish.
We have been to a few aquarium but thought this one was a must see.
You can go on their web site and get a coupon for reduced admission.
So in closing we really enjoyed ourselves and it would be a great place to take the family.

When your 6 year old breaks down in tears after going to the aquarium because they are exhausted, I would say you had a good time! My family of five (mom, dad, 6,14, and 12) loved it. The exhibits were great. We especially loved the jellyfish, the seal lions, the otters, and the frogs. It seemed like the front of the building was going through a remodel, but it wasn’t an issue. We will definitely be back!
