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

The Feiro Marine Center is located on Port Angeles Pier. It's a kid-friendly, family-friendly place, including "touch tanks" where you can get up close and personal with local fauna. The staff is knowledgeable and kind. The hours vary; open more often in the summer. This is a great place to see creatures you will never see in day-to-day life, and... More

Popped in here during my day visit to Port Angeles and was surprised at the hands on tanks! There were 3 or 4 yet the place was empty, not a huge amount to see or do do but we'll worth the small entry fee and a great experience for younger children as they can put their hands into tanks and...

This is as close as you can get to the local population of Crustaceans' fish and other local sea dwellers without having to don a Scuba tank. The staff I have noticed are very good with the children whether 5 or 20. good place to see

A small but interesting hands on aquarium located right on the water's edge. Fun place for young and old kids. The sole proprietor was very knowledgeable and welcoming. Had a brief but fun visit.

Went there with some friends, and their two young children. Their children loved the sand table the most! They looked at the fish some and the starfish but more interested in playing with the sand table. Maybe they could offer some more interactive science tables! Even perhaps a water table with fish toys or a fishing game or some sort!

I recently went with my four year old and a friend with her three year old to the marine center. While there were a few tanks where the kids could touch some marine life the fish tanks needed cleaning and there wasn't a lot to look at. There was a small sand table in the middle where both the boys... More

Great place for the kids to learn and to get up close and personal with sea life and not even realize they are learning.
