If you're into the marine life then of course you should go! If you're going to do a vacation to this area there are queen mary and aquarium tickets you can purchase together for a discount. Outside of the aquarium is the pier with lots of shopping and eating so it is in a perfect location!

If you like sharks, fishes or other sea creatures I recommend you go check this place out plus you get to pet the ray and see people scuba diving.

A nice place for kids and adults! Sea life is always colorful. Have mini water playground that 2-3 year olds gravitated to. Lots of shows! Places to eat inside and around venue, within walking distance. Parking is $8 with validated ticket at parking lot across the street.

I am an experienced scuba diver and I love the ocean's creatures. Second best to diving is going to this gorgeous aquarium. Wonderfully laid out, full of gorgeous and exotic sea animals, this is a "must visit" attraction for every person passing through Long Beach. Go early and often.

This aquarium has a lot to offer from penguins to sea lions. The surrounding shoreline village area is also a blast. The mural on the outside is also nice, and part of some art exhibits with muralists throughout Long Beach

I won some free tickets to this place. It was my dust time and I loved it. They had indoor and outdoor exhibits to enjoy. People were nice.

My favorite things here are the sea dragons and jellies. I like that they now have more of the jellies with bio lights, like the ones they have at the Monterey Aquarium. If you want something to eat here though I strongly suggest that you get it at the outside snack bar and avoid their incredibly slow and deadly Cafe... More
