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.

Thought this was going to be so-so but definitely worth a visit! The staff is very educational. Got to see the sea-life being fed and tons of baby starfish. They have cute gifts, too. Spent a couple of hours. Even have a few touch tanks where you can touch starfish, anemones, sand dollars and tube fish.

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
