Ok,.....but the $8 adult charge is crazy!!! My three year old liked touch tank,..but it is nothing more than a few critters. Feeding the seals is fun, but with the fencing, you can barely see them, its sad really. IF you have a large stroller (double or jogging) do not plan on taking it in and getting around easily. You...

The Seaside Aquarium is a fun place, with touch tanks, a place to make rubbings and a amazing staff. Got a question they are there to answer and show you more. Feed the seals, checkout the octopus and take your picture with a skeleton of a whale.

Historic small aquarium. Good place to take the kids. Touch tank is cool, but best thing is feeding the seals. Because of its size it is only about an our stop if you take time with the seals.

We came to the aquarium to feed the seals. It was fun, but hard to get good pictures because of the cage over them. It is there for safety, which is a great thing. The seals were very playful and made spectacles of themselves trying to get the fish we had to feed them. The aquarium itself is very small... More

We took our 3 yr old granddaughter to see the seals. She loved feeding them and giggled when we were splashed. She also really enjoyed touched the sea urchins and looking at all the sea life. We go to the aquarium every time we go to Seaside.

Almost didn't go based on some of the reviews. All that I can say is ignore the critics! We took our three boys 6,4, and 2 and they loved it. Right off of the bat it is a no brainer as young kids are free so it only cost us 2 adult admissions for all 5 of us to get... More

Don't go to see the aquarium, go to see and feed the seals. I have never been to such a small aquarium. The highlight though is feeding the seals. Fun time had by all.
