Portland Aquarium, a December 2012 addition to Milwaukie, introduces visitors to thousands of waterborne species. Guests can slide their hands along the smooth flesh of a stingray or the knobby arms of a starfish or engage in staring contests with leopard sharks and jellyfish. Other exhibits include a cold-water tank filled with fish native to Oregon's coast and a rainforest-themed jungle gym for children. The tropical touch-tank woos visitors with its displays of vibrant-color aquatic life while amphibious wonders, including poison dart frogs, thrill visitors. Those seeking bigger thrills may visit the ball pythons and bearded dragons or get their picture taken with a lorikeet. Land-loving iguanas also lurch around in the mix.
Overall, this place is especially great for kids, but even as an adult, I enjoyed myself.Tiffany C., Yelp, 1/28/13
We absolutely LOVE this aquarium! Never have we been able to directly interact with so many species of aquatic life.J Bea A., Yelp, 2/6/13
“Amazing opportunities to feed the animals up close and personal. ”
“Right now there is a little scavenger hunt happening for kids: find all the penguins in the exhibits, and you get a free food to feed the fish or birds. Added fun!! ”
“Buy the food to fee the animals. Well worth it ”
