First, the $4 all day admission for adults is a great value. The aquarium pipes its water in from the harbor, so there are all sorts of sea creatures in the tanks. The three touch tanks were awesome! Volunteer Burt was GREAT! He put barnacles, plankton, and sea water under a microscope so we could see them. He knew so... More

We were in Port Angeles to attend a wedding so didn't have much time. This and the other smaller marine center were right by our hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

My daughter (age 14) went in by herself. She enjoyed it, but wanted to ask questions about some of the things she saw, however, after the lady took her fee to get in, she never saw her again. She would have enjoyed it more if there were helpful staff, or any staff around.

It isn't the Monterey Aquarium but they have good staff and some remarkable animals for such a small place (squid!). Above all it's really cheap and kids love it.

This place is such a great asset to the community. Not only is it great for visitors to experience some of our local marine life, but it is a great tool for locals as well!

Small, but kids enjoyed the sea animal they could see & touch up close. We got good advice on our trip from knowledgeable local.

The touch tanks are always enjoyable, the difference in the textures of starfish was the most interesting to us. Able to see a good size octopus up close was thrilling too. The was information on the restoration of a local river that will return the salmon runs to it. What we found to be the most informational & educational were... More

Kids love this place and so to adults. Kids can find a crab or other sea creature in the water and bring it to them. Sometimes the keep it and put it in the feely tank. Bring back your childhood by touching the sea life.

It’s a bit on the rinky-dink side. For a place so favorably located, you might wish for more exhibits and more exciting ones. The coolest thing you could do when we were there was pet a fish. (They said you could pet an octopus not too long ago.) The book shelf might have been the most educational part of the... More

Thank you for your thoughts. I'm concerned that we didn't support your son's learning needs appropriately. If you don't mind letting me know what day of the week you visited, I would like to talk to the volunteers who were on duty that day. We do have a guest engagement training for all of our volunteers, although I'm sure we... More
