    Small scale and kind of amateur, but check out the sea horses and the eels and the touch pools. Crayon tables for art projects a nice touch

    CA (See) Totally cute quaint little aquarium located right under the Santa Monica Pier. Did we mention that they have starfish petting? No, that's not an euphemism.
