  • Well priced, the small attraction off the Santa Monica pier gave the kids a little lesson in the ocean. A chance to feed some starfish and check out the sharks. 
  • We decided to visit this aquarium - we thought the entrance fee of $5 per person was sufficiently cheap that it didn't matter if there wasn't a lot to see. It is very small and there aren't many thing...  more »
  • Lots of things to see and learn and it's small so not overwhelming. Kids can touch the animals and see that they are pretty cool.

  • Nice aquarium small and had a lot of cool things to explore. The only thing that sucked was that the employees were not to friendly and very quiet so we kind of just walked around and did our own thing. Ive been to other aquariums and staff approach you and talk to you about the animals and give you all kinds of information not here so if thats what your looking for go somewhere else. Other than that nice place.
  • Extremely small but for $5 per adult you can't expect much more. The volunteer staff was very friendly and friendly and informative. Kids had a great time and free for anyone under 12 to get in.
  • It's 5 bucks haha so keep that in mind. Still worth it to me for 5 bucks
  • It's very small, more educational then anything else. The workers looked a little bored and there was a lot going on. Their moon jellies looked a bit battered and poor kept. There is a section in the back showing how precipitation works and a science area with lots of these jars with dead fish? But, it was good for my 2 1/2 year old neice and 1 year old son. They loved petting the star fish.
  • Nice little aquarium with friendly staff. More for young kids as has petting tanks and education about local aquatic issues. Can't argue with the price either
