Great place to take the kids. Quite educational and the staff are friendly and helpful. Cute little gift shop as well, a little overpriced but still cute. We bought a magnet souvenir. Will probably take the kids again the next time we’re in town.
There are some funny inaccurate reviews on here. It's a room with fish tanks that you can walk around at a slow pace in 2.5 minutes... And it's like 15 dollars a person. I could see how some children in certain age groups who are interested in oceans could enjoy it but there are a ton of people giving it 5 out 5. Honestly just walk out to the ocean it's right there.
