We found the Aquarium of the Pacific to be just okay. We had planned to spend the day at the aquarium, but found it took no more than 3 hours to see it all. What they have is nice, but honestly it's just a big aquarium. If you interested in visiting an aquarium type place, I prefer Sea World in San Diego. Sea World has some nice aquariums as well as other activities, so you really can spend the day there. As others have noted, the ticket prices are quite high, but luckily for us, we had a half price coupon. As a result, it cost the four of us $50 to get into the aquarium. Had I paid full price I would have been extremely disappointed. Before you go, shop around, and get a discount coupon, because it's not worth the full price of admission.
