This is a small building close to the Port Angeles Visitor Center that has saltwater tanks where you can touch the animals in the tanks. There are volunteers who are very knowledgeable and their input is very interesting in learning about the area. We enjoyed it very much.

After going to the beaches in La Push we went to the Marine Life Center. Learning about the sea life was fascinating. The staff was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The touch tank and the octopus were highlights. The place is quite small but well worth the $4 fee to get in.

We took our 2 and 4 year olds and they had a blast! It's small, but has three 'touch pools', lots of awesome fish and cool displays and we saw Ursula the octopus eat a crab! Kids wanted to go back the next day. We came for the Olympic National Forest, but I think this was the highlight of their... More

Stopped here with my son, the staff was very friendly and very informative about all the sea creatures they had. I noticed some of the staff was volunteers and they were very nice also. My son loved being able to touch some of the animals. He especially liked seeing the octopus named Ursala. Great place, small, but would definitely go... More

For a $4 donation, it was a nice, small diversion, but nothing spectacular. I always like looking at the fish. There was an area for touching some sea creatures.Very friendly and helpful volunteers. The small (2-3") red starfish caught my eye.

This is a very small "Aquarium" but the staff really makes the most of it. Very informative and very personalized. A great variety of Sea Life and a great location right on the waterfront. Well worth the visit.

This is a great place for children for sure! As an adult I, too, throughly enjoyed the experience. There are three touch tanks and the the friendly and knowledgeable volunteers are more than happy to tell you all about the Seastars (Starfish), the sea cucumbers and the urchins. It is a fun thing to do.

Stopped in for a visit while in Port Angeles. This is a nice marine life education center with touch tanks for the kids. It is very small and they're obviously struggling to survive. The volunteers manning the center are wonderful and really excited when someone walks in. Please make the donation of $4 per adult rather than considering it "free".

Because it was small, the staff are ready to answer any question. It was like a private tour! Glad we went! It was free, but we gave a nice donation.
