  • Been to a lot of aquariums, not as bad as some but not as good as others. Their focus on the northwest is nice but the exhibits are in the small size.  more »
  • The thing I liked most about the aquarium was that the wildlife was native to the Pacific Northwest so you really get an experience of the nature that is all around you. Another thing that works well....  more »

  • Loved this trip to the Aquarium. We saw all the otters and boy were they showing off! The seals were putting on a show of their own. So many beautiful fish and so many people enjoying themselves. It was a great day.
  • Very cute aquarium. The best part is that there are not too many people here. It was not crowded when we came to visit. They has a beautiful selection of fish. The sea lions were also very cute.
