It told us so much about the sea life in and around the area of Alaska. It is very informative and in some cases, hands on. We enjoyed our visit there very much.

Had a great day here. It has lots of places and things to discover. The touch pool is awesome I recommend doing it for people of all ages. They have areas where you can go outside and see the seals and such weather permitting. All in all a wonderful experience.

Constant light rain the day we were in the area, so we decided to go to the SeaLife Center because we could stay in the car or get out, depending on our mood and the rain. So nice to see the animals, we particularly enjoyed hanging out to watch the bears!

We were mesmerized at the diving sea birds as seen underwater through glass. They seemed to fly underwater.

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.
