Enjoyed viewing the sea life and birds. Nice self guided tour, not rushed. Would be an excellent learning experience for children.

Great little aquarium. We went specifically to see the puffins. Great way to spend a few hours. It’s a little pricey but so is everything else in Alaska.

Very informative and fun. Love the touch tank, the sea lions, and all the info. It is a great place if you want to know more about life “under the sea”.

Learned a lot - everyone who visits Seward must go here. Just enough material to read about and fun stuff to see - touch - learn.

I love to bring kids here. There’s plenty to do and see. Great to get the kids moving inside out of the weather. The sea lions will keep them entertained for a good while.

We visited the Sealife Center during spring break and it seemed lots of other people were doing the same. The kids had a fun time seeing all the animals. The touch pools were a great hit with them. I really enjoyed the Seabird Sanctuary. They...More

Contact the Alaska Sealife Center directly. I believe they have regularly scheduled behind the scenes tours, but probably do them on special requests also. The staff is very informative and available for questions.
