It's not like there's so much to see in this small-town aquarium, the key point is that it is presented in a way that kids can understand and appreciate it. Most of the "staff" are kids themselves and that makes the experience that much more fun. We had a 6 and 8 year old and the touch tanks were great for them. The tanks are full of native fauna that can be found along the beaches or not too far offshore. Watching an octopus eat a crab was "way cool" and being "hugged" by a sea urchin was fun. There's plenty for an older child to do including examining stuff under microscopes. The young volunteer staff are to be commended for their knowledge and enthusiasm.
