This is a small, marine life learning center. The small children were really enjoining the chance to touch some of the marine life. The staff was engaged and eager to share their knowledge.

The Feiro Marine center should not be overlooked if visiting Port Angeles, WA. The center is inexpensive and you can look and learn at your leisure.

Another good place to take kids to learn about the underwater sea life. It has a touchy feel lab as well so you can feel what the under water feels like. It was cool even in my 20's
