  • We had a great time there as a family. It was pretty busy, but to be expected on a Saturday with nice weather in Seattle. The staff were kind, helpful, and very informative. The facility was very well-kept, and quite informative. And the cafe upstairs had some tasty food for comparable prices to other restaurants. The gift shop also has a pretty great selection of items.
  • My son loves to come to the aquarium! There's so much to look at and see. It's cool that they have so many sea creatures that are local to the Puget Sound! The giant octopus are my favorite super cool animals! They also have tropical fish birds and an underwater dome.
