My daughter loved it there. Kept running from exhibit to exhibit... Very clean and organized. Definitely worth the visit. Make sure to see the octopus and the seals...

they have tanks where the kids can touch the sea creatures, if your on time clock and want to do somethind fun for the kids, it doesnt take long to go through the place. it is pricey, so be prepared, I think you can get discount tickets through the pass system they have for other attractions. kids will like it, the younger the better.

The otters, seals and puffets were awesome to see! I didnt catch any cool shows though which might have made the experience even better.

My husband and I visited using the Seattle CityPass. We thoroughly enjoyed the aquarium. The sea otters were by far our favorite thing. Try to get there when they're feeding them because it's so much fun to watch. We also got to watch them feed the octopus, but it wasn't being particularly active. The exhibits are all great, but it's a fairly small place. We were done in about an hour and thought it could have been a little larger. If you have the CityPass, it's well worth the trip. If you don't have the CityPass, I don't know if it's worth it.

3 of us - 15, 48 and 77 visited on 24 August 2013.
We arrived early - which was good as it was pretty busy as we were leaving.
The show in the fish tank was fun and informative (a little cheesy, but I enjoy that).
We enjoyed the touch tanks and looking at the various fish but the highlight was the otters. We also enjoyed the seals. 2 hours is a good amount of time and you won't feel like you missed anything. We used the Seattle City Pass and found it to be a good deal
