I was visiting my daughter in the SoCal area and we decided to do a few touristy things that weren't the routine type (Knotts, Disneyland, etc.) After touring the Queen Mary, we drove just a few minutes to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Although it is fairly small by comparison to others like Baltimore and Chicago, it is very nicely... More

Wondeful place for the whole family. It rivals the aquarium in Monterey, CA. Took an 18 month old, a 7 year old and a 9 year old. They all loved it. What I liked the best was interior exhibits were low enough for hte baby to see. Get there early to avoid the school groups in the summer.

We got there about 225 went over to bubba gumps p.s there are lots of great food choices to choose from before you go in to look at the exhibits. I got a pass for 2 tickets online at goldstar for 37 dollars and we got to see the exhibit from 3 to 6 O clock which was enough time... More

Well worth a visit. Benefits are the connections to CA marine life. It stands in the shadow of Oceanario de Lisboa in Portugal.

This was a great time for our nine year old grandson. He is always inquisitive about pretty much everything. He had a very good experience and enjoyed looking at all the different exhibits. We learned a lot of things about the different aquatic creatures. The touch tanks were fun, and although he learned a bit about sharks, he still doesn't... More

Went to the aquarium with a couple other families. Overall we had a good time. The exhibits were nice. There were a few areas that were interactive and allowed the kids the touch some of the sea creatures. All of the kids loved playing in the outdoor water play area. We spent a good portion of our visit there. Good... More

We participated in an evening business reception with full run of the aquarium. It was a very nice time. The displays and exhibits were very nicely done. My wife took dozens of photos. I turned the camera on her when she touched the stingray... We enjoyed our time at the aquarium.

My teenage son wanted to hit an aquarium on our California trip so we stopped here and toured. There were quite a few children's groups there so we toured opposite of them. With the exception of the very large marine animals (orcas etc) this place was very informative and had a huge variety of thing to view. I would definitely... More
