A fun little aquarium but to get everything out of your visit to need to do some of the keeper programs.
If all you did was walk through to look at the exhibits, you could go through this aquarium in an hour or so - what makes this location special is the demonstrations that go on throughout the day. On our visit we watched a Pacific Octopus get fed fish, watched a seal training session and the fish feeding and diver talk at the underwater dome.
We have been to big aquariums like the Monterey Bay or Atlanta facility before and we still enjoyed visiting this location. A lof of the fish and mammals on display were indigenous to the Northwest and the keepers knowledge showed.
A great thing to do is to visit the aquarium in the morning, walk up the hill to Pike's Place for lunch and an afternoon of shopping.
