  • Its a great place for younger children, my 20mo old loved all the low fish tanks. They have stepping stools for little ones as well. There are different times for feeding turtles or fish & an adventure walk to go look for bugs & birds. So lots to keep kids engadged & not just looking at the tanks or cages. The parking lot is kind of confusing because it is no where near the museum. But there is a shuttle that takes people back & forth. I didnt see in any reviews or the website that you can not walk to the museum from the lot.
  • I've volunteered here for a couple years now. It's honestly a great place to spend an hour or two and it's pretty cheap for all the stuff you can see. It's great for children and open every day of the week. Also has some awesome VIP and educational programs!
  • Nice exhibits. The "behind the scenes" tours & feedings were great. We got to see baby sea horses (just hours & days old) & baby rays. However, at the end of the tour, they told us that they don't only rescue injured/sick animals, but they take healthy animals for their exhibits too, which is very disappointing to me.
  • Great little center in a natural habitat. The animals seemed overcrowded in the outdoor tanks. I'm glad we had free passes to check it out but wouldn't pay to go back.
  • I loved this spot. We were just adventuring around Fisherman's Wharf and decided to pop in on a whim. It's a small aquarium, no doubt, but the contents did not disappoint! There were two tunnels to walk through, a touch tank (so damn cool -- you can touch sting rays, little sharks, and starfish), and we got to see some sea otters doin' their thang at the end. Really cute, fun spot!
