Great exhibitions and activities for kids and adults alike. Amazing sea life in clean environments
fun place to go for a days tour with kids. A little steep in price and limited areas. A little too over crowed, but still a very nice place if your from out of town.
Awesome place, very nice exhibits. All personnel is very courteous and ready to help or explain anything about the exhibits
Spent 3h in the aquarium. Prices are high but its a huge aquarium.
This place was so crowded!! It had some cool exhibits though. Never go on the holidays and watch your feet for strollers
Great price and lots of fun
Go for the evening half price hours! Less people!
This place is an incredible learning environment. The displays are awesome but I feel the people are too rough when they touch the creatures or tap the glass.
A Real Sea Wold .. Alot Too See .. Its Very Interesting
Make sure to pet the baby sharks outside! How cool are the jellies too? Love the aquarium!
Don't wait in line! There's a kiosk near the start of the line that takes credit cards and will have you out in a moment
Love watching the fishes and other creatures. But the store is a bit to expensive.
This was my second visit n I still love it :) just love the shark lagoon! They have this area that u get to touch sting rays too ;)
Great aquarium to visit. Great area outside to walk around the lighthouse and restaurants really close by.
Great place to take the kiddos to learn about ocean life. I rather enjoyed myself more than the kids did lol
Great place for children and families. Many interactive sections which are great.
I had an amazing day there! We run into Peggy a couple times in different spots. she was so helpful and she did an amazing job
Petting jellyfish, rays and sharks makes the whole experience even better!
Ask about purchasing only the on-line digital picture. It's an option they don't mention unless requested.
Make sure you validate your parking at the Aquarium before you leave. It is $8 with validation and can be $15 or more without it.
I know it seems silly, but it is fun collecting stamps to your map!
Cafe Scuba upstairs offers good options for lunch: from grilled fish (not for the tanks #staffjoke) to hamburgers.
Sharks are good to see
Larger than it looks but still wish it were bigger ;) lots of cool things to see and all the tanks are beautifully maintained and colorful♡
Ocean Science Center
Really great aquarium! Fascinating history and dedicated tour guides! The 4D movie is amazing!
Really nice Aquarium with inside and outside sections and touch pools for the kids. Plenty of places outside to chill as well and restaurants near by. Good day for the family
The ship tour was a bit chilly but inside in the aquarium was awesome!
You have to go to the second floor and see my art on the wall of the blue fin Tuna and the Chilian Sea Bass it is a watercolor it has been there since 2004. It was worth it to make it. Contract to.
Giant Pacific Octopus
Pet the sharks, jellyfish and stingrays! Amazing experience for everyone.
The most awesome girl showed us around last time. Chantel C. enjoys her job and cares for the creatures. We found out she was our Educator on our whale watch. Awesome!! <3 it here! Thank you Chantel.
Get s membership card. . . It is worth the money if you go here more than once a year. :)
Be sure to catch sea otter feeding.
Very pretty and a great way to learn about marine life.
Go touch #jellies
Do not Feed the seals :)
At this family-friendly weekend event 10/26-27, the Aquarium hosts the annual children’s costume contest, underwater pumpkin carving, spooky storytelling, eerie animals in the Great Hall, and more.
I love to come here, its wonderful and beautiful!
Best to get membership!!!!
Peguins! Best visit w/ the otters ever!
Watch out for the birds inside the gate. They fly randomly without alerting you and they will climb all over you if you have food for them. Overall so much fun! Which is $3 in the front entrance.
My favorite place in LA. Every time I come to town we go. Go during the week if you can.
Lover the fishes
Take your time :)
In the summer after 5pm it's $15
