We visited for the first time on Saturday. The aquarium is very nice with wonderful displays. They kind of push the "polar bears are disappearing, big oil is awful, the ice caps are melting" issue a bit too much, but all in all we had a great time.

Took time out from the trade show I was attending and walked over to the aquarium with my son. The person at the ticket counter noticed our trade show badge and gave us an excellent price for admission. It was even better than the advertised price on the sign. The aquarium was very busy that day, but we still had a good time.

Love taking my daughter here to look at the animal life.

You can feed the beautiful lorikeets, pet the stingrays, smile at the seal lions antics, and watch in awe at the massive sharks as they swim by.There is also a small play area with water that squirts out for the kiddies.

They have educational displays and events throughout the day. They sometimes have cultural events, with Japanese drummers and other community organizations.

The cafe has good food and isn't to horribly expensive, and the parking isn't either but they are controlled by the city.

You can easily bring small children and watch them be fascinated for hours here, and is definitely a good deal for locals with getting a membership.

A visit to this small but well arranged acquarium is well worth an hour spent. The sea otter exhibit is especially enjoyable, with a large convex glass enclosure that maximizes views of the frisky beasts.

Great educational experience for everyone. Clean, open, and lots to see. I recommend the LBAOP as a reasonably priced outing to do with the family. Plus, there is much to do around the area -- shopping, restaurants, etc..
