This is a very small place and many of the tanks did not appear clean and well maintained. Definately not worth the $8 entrance fee. Stick with the natural coastal beauty in this area.

Absolutelly great !! Just, I don't like to see seals in prison - I think it was quite sad - but in the museum you can touch sea herbs and it was a super nice experience ! Really recommended for family with children

Our fourth visit in the past 7 years or so. Always a favorite stop for our family. Nice size for families with small children, feed the seals for $1, entrance fee reasonable.

It was very small and rundown and was not worth the time or effort to get my nieces there. This was #1 on our list in Seaside and it is too bad it is in that shape.

Great little aquarium good for small children. You can feed the seals and the hands on tide pool activity was fun for my 4 yr old.
