    Definitely worth a visit. Doesn't take a lot of time to go through the exhibits there's stuff for kids to touch and to learn. Great to take visitors great for people who are camping at Fort Worden and best of all a big plus for people who are local. The volunteers are wonderful they are super friendly I would recommend doing this at least once a year if not more

    Fun little aquarium to explore local marine life. Lots of touching pools. My kids loved it.

    So many things to see in this little center. Knowledgeable staff. You get to see what is living just below the dock. You will be amazed.

    Wonderful place to visit! Knowledge and enthusiastic staff. Tide pool touch-tanks are a great way to learn about local sea life. Private bookings are available for groups.
