An absolute must see! You need to plan to visit as it is a wonderful chance to see the marine life first hand. Very informative as well. Would go again for sure as it is hard to take it all in on one visit. One of the high points of our trip to Alaska.

This was a lovely museum, full of active sea life. Lots of birds, enjoyed finally seeing puffins up close after seeing them so long from far away. We didn't go with kids but there were a lot there, and they seemed to love it.

Visited the SeaLife center a few days ago. The birds were fun to watch dive under the water and you must take the extra time to "play" with the huge sealion, he's a lot of fun! What a great place to bring kiddos to see.

I love to stop in on rainy days and hang out. The underwater sea life is beautiful. The staff is very friendly and the gift shop has a lot of quality items.

Outside of the natural beauty around Resurrection Bay, this is the one must see in Seward. Everything is well thought out for kids or adults. It is worth every penny.

Loved to see the info on the animals native to Alaska, the rehab program (adorable orphaned sea otter) the bird exhibit and the regional crafts available at the gift shop.

Rated as one of the top 10 aquariums in the world, and with good reason. What a wonderful little spot in a tiny little town. If you find yourself in Seward, you really ought to go here. Plenty of exhibits and so much to sea. Oh was that an ocean pun. Sorry about that.

We visited the sealife centre after we disembarked our cruise ship in Seward and before we joined a Kenai Fjords day cruise. It is an indoor facility so good to visit even in bad weather. I enjoyed seeing Puffins up close as well as some of the tanks displaying anemones, starfish etc. It's not a huge place but you can... More
