Great place to take the kid(s) after work for a little family time. My boy loves the Jelly fish and the tropical fish, but there's a nice petting tank with Rays and Sharks and a play area for kids. Probably not worth the full price of admission,...continued

The price was right and I had never been there before. I was on vacation and looking for something close by to do. It is a fascinating place, well laid out and full of wondrous things to see. And it wasn't so large that I couldn't see it all and...continued

we didn't have to wait in line for anything. I decided to take my boyfriend here on Valentine's Day and it was great. The food there was amazing and the exhibits were really nice.

The place was smaller than I thought but the area that the...continued

I enjoyed the colorful fish and Flora but was saddened to discover that many of the exhibits were closed and that all the shows were held earlier in the day.

Arriving after 3:00 p.m. meant that many/most of the shows were not available. However, being able to spend time looking at all the various tanks without crowds made up for that.

Entering the Aquarium at 3:00 avoids the school groups. Easy to view all of the tanks. This aquarium is one of my all time favorites.

This was a great place to visit. We took my friend's two year old and she absolutely loved it all the fish.

While the exhibits and shows at the Aquarium of the Pacific can't hold a candle to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago or the Monterey Bay Aquarium, it's the best available marine life experience in the SoCal area. The $15.50 (including service fee)...continued

Granted, I made some bad freeway decisions resulting in arriving at the aquarium very late and frazzled.... but I still feel more time is needed to "do it right". It should be all day access or at least from noon because the AotP is wonderful!!! ...continued

Family fun for all ages -- we all got to observe creatures we had not seen before and learn new info about the incredibly diverse Pacific. We even got to pet jellyfish as well as sharks and rays! Docents were accessible to answer questions and...continued

I went to the Aquarium a year ago when my daughter was just over a year old. Even at that young age, I could tell she was fascinated by the fish. I took her again this week to see her new reactions, and she just giggled and pointed to the fish...continued

I had such a wonderful time here. The staff is so friendly and helpful. It is such a relaxing and entertaining place to spend your day. I loved all of the hands on aspects - such as touching a sting-ray, a shark, or getting to feed the birds. ...continued

Horribly over-crowded as it was a holiday weekend and kids were out of control, running every which way, making it difficult to enjoy the exhibits and actually dangerous for some of the older senior citizens that I encountered. Other aquariums...continued

It was nice but didn't like all the political jabs at big business. This world will not survive without industries that support the working class.. This aquarium does not compare to the aquarium that once was in Palos Verdes back in the 50's...continued

Having been to Monteray Aquarium I purchased a season pass (years ago) and only went twice before I was bored with it. I love the shark/ray pool and the seal/sea lion exhibit.

This time around I took my girlfriend, who had not been there, and...continued

I took my husband for a surprise and it was awful! We went to pick-up our tickets and because we were 2 minutes behind the person in front of us, we had to wait another hour and a half besides the 30 minutes we already waited (our tickets are not...continued
