Everyone should support non-profits like this. They do a good job at educating the masses about marine life and ecology. It's small but they pack a lot in and the staff and volunteers are knowledgable. Biggest ochre sea stars I have ever seen ( and I've seen many!) . Nice sand dollar display. They have an octopus but they release... More

It's really kind of a PA institution. If you're looking to see the town, you have to go to Hollywood beach and the Pier lookout tower. The Center is located right there so there's no reason not to visit. It's certainly not the Seattle Aquarium but they do have aquariums, an octopus, touch and feel pools, lots of educational stuff...

The staff (I don't know if they're volunteer or paid or a mix of both) are very knowledgeable about the Elwha Dam project and the animals in their small tide pools. While it's not built up to look like the animals are in a natural tide pool, the animals are plentiful and well irrigated (important to tidal species!). There are... More

This was a nice stop in our adventure. The lady that was here today was very informative on all of the Ocean species that they have on exhibit. They even have a touching tank. Being from the Midwest, it was fun to learn about the life cycles of aquatic creatures we never see. They have an octopus in one aquarium,... More

It was a really foggy and rainy & cold day so we had to switch our plan from going to Hurricane Ridge to go here. Our daughter really enjoyed learning marine life; she spent a lot of time at the "Touch" places there. She really liked the octopus. It only cost $4.00/adult and $2.00/child ( I think 5 years old...

Not just informative but fun for all. Hands on to some creatures and up and close to others. Staff are ready to assist and give their expertise.

We came across this place while walking by the water, and decided to check it out. The admission was a suggested donation... don't remember what it was exactly, but I remember that it wasn't too expensive. The staff was very knowledgable and happy to speak with you about any questions you had. I wouldn't make a special trip just for... More

Stopped in at this marine life center at the waterfront. Lots of exhibits where you can touch the marine life -- starfish, etc. Would be very good to excellent for families. Note that in the harbor outside the center, you can often see harbor seals.

Great staff. Very keen to tell us about what they had. Hands on tanks to touch and feel sea life. Pleasant way to pass a few hours

Had some time to kill in Port Angeles so dropped in to experience this non-profit Marine Life Center. Being off-season the center admission by donation. There were a few families with young children enjoying the hand-on tanks. The volunteer docents were very knowledgeable and would answer any and all questions asked about the variety of shore life on exhibit. We... More
