  • Super fun place for kids to come and learn about marine life. I believe they still have the touchable water tanks where you can pet all the little marine creatures.
  • Great place. Affordable, fun and beautiful. $22 for my whole family of six and that got us free beach parking (regularly $10). Tons of stuff to touch and learn. I couldn't get the kids out if there. Beach was beautiful.
  • This is one place you have to visit when visiting Port Townsend. The town was votes best community in 2015. But the folks here can add to the marine ecology and awareness vital to Port Townsend and the Puget Sound in general. Check out their visiting speaker schedule. they re-open in April. I can't wait.
  • Great views, plenty of parking, short walk to beach.
  • Best 15 minutes of my life
