  • Very nice and we'll maintained, excellent educated staff! Smilling staff and not too crowded! Excellent for toddlers and small kids! Beautiful Vistas and trails right outside!
  • A gem of oceanic science and outreach. Beautiful exhibits and a focus on education without the crowds. Don't miss it!
  • This place really focuses on making marine science accessible, especially for children. There's several interesting exhibits, and the tours are fun and informative. The blue whale skeleton is a landmark, and the touch pool is well maintained and the friendly staff are both happy to help and educate.
  • It is very nice place to visit specially with children. You get an opportunity to touch and view various live marine creature. And the included guided tour is very informative.
  • A fun half day sort of a place. The main attraction is the amazing blue whale skeleton that's the largest in the world (87ft). There's also a small aquarium area inside where volunteers educate visitors about marine life and let you touch a shark! wait... What??
