lots of fish

Went to the aquarium, old building, and old exhibits, you can feed the seals which the kids like. Interesting fish to look at, but shows its age.

4 year old granddaughter was very excited to feed the Seals and pet the sea urchins just the right size and price for her attention span

If you're looking for some entertainment for the kids this is the place! My 3 year old had a blast looking at all the different fish and plants. While this Aquarium may not be that large and is a little over priced it's a great way to put a smile on any kids face!

This aquarium is, for lack of a better word, quaint. My granddaughter has been to all the largest aquariums across the US, but never tires of the Seaside Museum and always asks to go there. The hands on volunteers are patient and helpful. Smelling fishy after feeding the seals never gets old. The aquarium is small, but with a great... More

We love stopping at this aquarium! It's inexpensive and you get to see quite a few fish! You can also feed the seals! There are touch tanks too! Worth a stop in!

I had few expectations when visiting but hoped it would be enough to entertain a teenager for 30 mins (ish) so I could avoid driving to Newport's aquarium. The Seaside aquarium is small and a bit outdated and I ended up on Newport about three days later. If you have the time and $$$, head to Newport. If you want... More

We came here on our honeymoon and I love the seals. After 29 years still love the seals. That splash less now then back then. It is a tiny and old but it is priced reasonable and it is great for a tiny beach side town. We have taken our kids here over the years and they also loved it.
