Took my mom here for a day of just something different to do. We had such fun time watching and learning about different sea creatures. It was my bad that I didn't find out that it was the same day that 8 different schools were having their field trip there. Regardless of the added foot traffic, it was fun to... More

Without a doubt, the Aquarium is a must see! Take the time to walk through each room and look closely at the sealife. It is breathtaking and surprising!

This aquarium is impressive. If you visit once, you might as well join, because you get a hefty discount on the behind-the-scenes tour. They also have free WIFI and their own APP, which you download/install. Other than the aquarium layout, they give you a list of demonstrations and shows that occur during the day. It is a bit frenetic, but... More

We love this aquarium, it provides great education, many hands-in experiences and has "Animal Encounters" for members. It is a magical place!

Great Aquarium. Wonderful group classes and opportunity to interact and touch some of the marine life. Both indoor and outdoor exhibits. Loved the birds in the walk thru environment. Very clean and maintained. Great gift shop and friendly staff.

I don't know why it took so long for me to go there with the kids. The kids loved it and we bought the annual pass for a family of 4 in the same household. The pass is $125. When you walk in, you'll see a ceiling to floor aquarium. The kids are all over that, but there are more... More

Right on the harbor sits this very good aquarium. Lots of jellies, sea horses, anemone, with things for children to enjoy and experience. We saw many small children discovering the wonders of the sea with squeals of delight. A must-visit attraction in Long Beach.

We spent the morning visiting the aquarium....very impressive. Judging from the number of families and children it is a popular venue. A wonderful addition to the city.

Should check their calendar before going. We went on a day that was extremely busy. Had my 3 year old nephew and had a hard time getting to see everything. Although given a map, was still a little confusing. Only found the outside by accident. Parking was also difficult as it shared with the restaurants etc. in the general area.... More

If you are staying in Long Beach and need something to excite the kids other than the beach, then this is it. The shows are fantastic, especially the sea lion/seal show. There are many interactive displays for kids to get their hands wet and touch the critters. The shark tank is pretty neat; there is a sawtooth shark that is... More
