  • Top quality aquarium! We love aquariums and were highly impressed. Although it is not the largest (probably 3 hours tops if you take your time), the tanks are well thought out and well maintained. Unlike many aquariums, you get to see into some of the areas where they feed and care for some of the birds and mammals. The staff was also very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth it!
  • If you're looking for an aquarium then the Alaska SeaLife Center is your next stop in Alaska. You'll find plenty of parking and food in the area including areas to sit in the sun and relax. If you look at everything here then you'll need an hour, but if you interact with the exhibits then you'll need up to two hours. The people here are very friendly to not only visitors, but also residents of Alaska. If you're a teacher then you can get a discount on your ticket. The birds are may favorite exhibit because you can nearly touch them and they sound interesting too.
  • Childhood place, anyone remember Sea Train? Anyways, went here with friend and it was amazing. Some things were being fixed, but looks the same. (Not bad)
  • We enjoyed our day here when the weather outside was cold and rainy. Very grateful for the refuge since we were camping. I was pleasantly surprised by the aquarium. I loved the bird watching room where you can get up close to the birds, if they're feeling social of course. I enjoyed watching the seals and sea lions. The videos at the end were extremely informative and interesting. We watched every one.
  • Awsome place. Has a "free" SeaLife petting area (starfish and stuff) and a cool bird exhibit (they come up to you and stuff). Very short (went through whole thing, reading everything pretty much in 3 1/2 hours) and expensive ($24 a person + tax).
