    I love aquarium's and this one is good, but it is kind of pricey at $22/person. I can't remember the lady's name that was answering questions about the different animals, but she was awesome. She answered tons of our questions and shared a lot of other cool information, too. She was great. We were there during the sea otter's feeding time and that was the best part. They have open tanks where you can touch starfish, which was also a highlight. Despite the higher price, it's a good spot to hit if you're in Seattle.

    Went on vacation with our 4 year old and our 20 month old. We all loved it. Beautifully designed, fish 'tanks' that go from floor to ceiling, an octopus tank, fish hatchery and more. We enjoyed it much more than the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Our now 5 year old still asks when we are going again. (We did purchase the City Pass and recommend it if you want to see multiple attractions.)

    The toddler room on the 2nd floor is amazing for kids. My oldest loved the tactile experience of the live sea creatures. Definitely coming back

    Not for adults just for kids but you will have a great time here. Do not expect is going to be like Vancouver aquarium or Seaworld lol! This is more for research and teach little kids about marine life

    A delightful place with an interesting array of wildlife. The highlight of the trip was definitely the puffins. I will most certainly visit this aquarium again.
