Great exhibits, wonderful hands-on touch tanks. Great for all ages, but really little ones will become cranky after a while. Jellyfish are not to be missed.

I was not sure what to expect, but i was pleasantly surprised. There is a lot of different fish tanks to see. There is a lot of interactive exhibits, such as going to the bird room and feeding the birds from your hands or being able to touch the different types of sea animals in the shallow tanks.

From Australia and staying on Queen Mary for a few days the aquarium was like a magnet, as we live on the coast and have a great interest in all things marine. We were not disappointed. It was good to see different fish and sea creatures that are not found in Australia. This facility was extremely well built and laid... More

The aquarium was overall good but they had way to many of the same type of exhibits. Many of the tanks had the same fish with a few different fish to make it look like a whole new type of aquarium. They have an abundant amount of different jelly fish which is great but I think they use that to... More

Awesome aquarium! Lots to see and touch for both a seven and a year old. No one got bored. There are tables outside... so bring your sack lunches. After your rest break, take the nice loop walk to check out the lighthouse and snap pics of the view.

We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific with our three year old granddaughter. It’s a great place for the little ones. Lots of colorful displays and plenty of places where they can get their hands wet. There are several displays that allow guests to touch manta rays, young sharks and even jellyfish. I can get pretty crowded on the... More

This is a terrific (even if too expensive) place for family outings --- we went with our granddaughter and some other friends and spent about four hours or so. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful, the sea lions, otters, rays, etc., are wonderful. Our granddaughter (aged 3.5) talked about it all the next day.... That said, it is very expensive... More

It was a wonderful visit and so educational. The penguins, otters and lorakeet were our favorite exhibits. It was exciting to see the latest addition - Lily - to the penguin exhibit. So much to do and see at this aquarium!!

Fun place. Had some interesting exhibits as well as the usual. I was a bit disappointed by the tube - the one you walk through with water all around you. While I didn't expect the floor to be see-through, I did think the top would be. But it isn't, so it was neat to walk thru with fish on each... More
