This is a very small marine science center, but that's its charm. I went with my uncle (2 adults) and spent an hour there with the volunteer. We learned a TON about marine life in the area. It's a great little center and would be appropriate for kids about ages 4-12. But pay attention if you have kids -- not... More

What I particularly like about the Marine Life Center is the hands-on tank in which you get to pick up sea stars, etc. It's a wonderful experience.

First, the $4 all day admission for adults is a great value. The aquarium pipes its water in from the harbor, so there are all sorts of sea creatures in the tanks. The three touch tanks were awesome!

We were in Port Angeles to attend a wedding so didn't have much time. This and the other smaller marine center were right by our hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

My daughter (age 14) went in by herself. She enjoyed it, but wanted to ask questions about some of the things she saw, however, after the lady took her fee to get in, she never saw her again. She would have enjoyed it more if there were helpful staff, or any staff around.

It isn't the Monterey Aquarium but they have good staff and some remarkable animals for such a small place (squid!). Above all it's really cheap and kids love it.

The touch tanks are always enjoyable, the difference in the textures of starfish was the most interesting to us. Able to see a good size octopus up close was thrilling too. The was information on the restoration of a local river that will return the salmon runs to it. What we found to be the most informational & educational were... More
