Small but fun.

This is a small but fun and educational museum on the pier. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They have a lot of hands on exhibits that the kids love.

The Marine Life center is very small, and it consists mainly of several tanks in a room. It isn't impressive, but it's free in winter, and cheap during the rest of the year. During winter, there are very few visitors, so we got a lot of special attention for the volunteer, who provided lots of information about the critters in... More

It costs to go in and it's not very big. However my 9 year old daughter spent quite a bit of time in there because you can put your hands in the tanks to feel different ocean life. She really enjoyed it.

We managed to make it to the Marine Life center about 30 minutes before it closed and had a wonderful time. It is not a big place, but they had a number of tanks filled with marine life of the area. There were several touch tanks where we could touch starfish, sea cucumber and live sand dollars. (I don't think... More

What a surprise this center was. It looks small, but is filled with so many wonderful water pool with marine life to touch and view. The volunteer who was there on the Wednesday we visited was so informative, kind and great with our 9 year old son. We were there during feeding time and our son had a ball and... More

We stopped by Feiro Marine Life Center for about 45 minutes or so, and we were very pleased. It cost $12 for two adults and two kids, and the staff was pleasant and welcoming. The octopus, local fish, and sea mammal exhibits were fun, but the marine life touch-tanks were definitely the highlight for the kids. The Center is small... More

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
