The Seattle aquarium is a nice place with tons of sea life species. The people working there are passionate and have tons of knowledge. They will make your visit fun and a learning experience as well. You get to touch the starfish and urchins. It's an amazing experience.

I hate to be negative about any aquarium because they can be important for education and species preservation. This aquarium does not live up to any of the others I have been to such as Monterrey, New England, or Alaska. Small and with no distinctive elements. Would be good for families with small children.

This is a great aquarium!!! The hands on area is really cool - a chance to TOUCH sea life safely (for them and for you!). The employees are very knowledgeable and happy to explain anything and everything to guests. The set up of the space is very nice - you feel both educated and surrounded by ART at the same time. Photographs are amazingly beautiful. Jellyfish exhibit is so mesmerizing - I could have stood and looked at the one alone for an hour. Everything feels clean and crisp. Make sure to go outside the main building to look in the other area with seals, sea otters, etc. We saw them deliver a brand new seal from another aquarium - sweet, sweet, sweet.

I hope I get to go again next time I am in Seattle and spend more time exploring this place.

We thoroughly enjoyed the attraction as part of the Seattle City Pass. We went thru all parts of it and enjoyed the IMAX presentation too. The hands on experience was a plus too....kids would enjoy!!
