Its a one room aquarium with some tanks of cool creatures and even a few touch tanks with starfish and sea urchins. There is also a caged seal area with some hungry and entertaining seals that you can feed. That's all. Not much to to it. Easy way to spend 30 minutes with younger kids.

Crowded, but a must see when at Seaside. Feed the Seals.. Entrance is reasonable. Fun for all ages. Fish tanks for the children to touch animals. A fish that traveled from Japan during the Tsunami. Octopus that was very active..

This is a great little take on the prom in Seaside. Feeding the seals is a lot of fun, and the exhibits were interesting. It's a small aquarium, we spent about an hour there and were glad we did.

Great time was had by all. The seals were fun for the little ones to feed. The exhibits were informative and entertaining. Don't expect the Seattle Aquarium but a good time

The Seaside Aquarium is small, but still had a lot of interesting exhibits. The kids' favorite part was feeding the seals.

Our family loves going to aquariums. This is a very old aquarium and so we didn't have high expectations. When you first enter you see a small tank with several seals. At first my heart sank because i was concerned that the animals didn't have enough space. Posted on the wall was a sign that said the animals have a... More

This was fun. There isn't a lot to it but still fun to do. The exhibits were at a nice height to see. The info easy to read. The seals let you know who wanted food and where. That was the best part.

Interesting displays. Hands on tank. We enjoyed feeding the seals. Feed is only $1.00 for a small tray of bait fish, and the seals compete for your attention.

Loved this little aquarium! We enjoyed feeding the seals, and being able to touch various sea critters. It was very informative, and wasn't over priced. Make sure you're OK with getting wet if you decide to feed the seals as they love to splash to get your attention.
