What a great way to spend a day. Not only are there great sea animal exhibits, the Lorikeet Forest is a great place to get close to beautiful birds. There are numerous touch tanks for both kids and adults to enjoy and there are some fun theater shows. Also, I've seen many school buses during the week where students that... More

If you are in the Long Beach area, I would recommend a visit to the Aquarium of the Pacific. There are numerous indoor and outdoor exhibits with a number that you can actual interact with the animals. My personal favorite is feeding the lorikeets, but you can pet sharks, jelly fish, starfish, and stingrays. My five year old daughter had... More

This was a very nice aquarium but seemed small compared to some of the others that I have been to. I will say the displays were very well done. We were there for a reception so maybe some of the areas were closed to us, but I didn't see anything that made me go "whoa...".

My kids really really enjoyed this place. They were in love with petting the sharks and could not stop laughing for some reason when they seen the scuba diver all decked out in scuba gear swimming with the sharks while he was talking to us. I ended up getting in for a pretty good price $67 for myself, my wife... More

The aquarium had lots to see indoors and out. It was a gorgeous day so we got to take advantage of both. They have exhibits where you can pet a starfish, stingray or even a shark! Great for both kids and adults. Large variety and informative as well.

My family took a weekend trip to the beach to show our daughter and she said she'd like to go to an aquarium. We had a wonderful time and wished we had more time to enjoy. You could spend all day there. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended for any age.
