    Spent about 20 min. here and had a lot of fun looking at all the sea animals and orka skull. My 15 year old daughter got to hold a starfish and loved it. Best of all it's free but donations are accept...  more »

    Great little stop while at the pier in Manhattan Beach. Just enough to see of marine life to stimulate further interest.  more »

    This is a wonderful facility that is great for families. They have up close and personal exhibits and even a small tank to touch sea life.  more »

    This is a really cute little aquarium located at the end of the pier. Admission is free (though donations are recommended), and they show fish from the local area. There's also a few tanks where you can touch the sea life.

    Though it is on the tiny side as some have pointed out, I loved it! I loved the tight knit feeling the place has. We went on my daughters 2nd birthday and she loved it! She was a little skeptical about touching live sea life lol but all in all it was great. I read some people complain about the $5 fee for adults lol which I find ridiculous, although it's small... people are still working there and the upkeep of the all the tanks in there is well worth beyond a cheap 5 bucks. ... don't see it as a fee to enter, see it as a very tiny donation the oceans wild life.

    It was a cool small aquarium. You're able to touch the starfish, see the baby sharks, eels, preserved squid and see some fish.
