It was a very nice experience for my husband and I, we absolutely enjoyed the aquarium and the information the staff gave us.

Great for little kids. Small and contained. Not air conditioned and a little crowded but a nice way to spend an afternoon learning about marine life.

The aquarium is very small. But for the cheap price, it's ok. Not much to look at, my kids wanted to see more.

It is a great place with some very interesting things to look at such as sea horses and jelly fish. Even have some sharks and a small touch tank. Only thing that keeps it from getting stars is the size. It is so small it could be walked through in 15 minutes. But it is not crowded so you can take your time and bonus that it is under the santa monica pier so it can be turned in to a full day outing

Nice for families of little ones. Staff is very friendly and informative. Small size allows personal attention to kids. Wouldn't recommend for older kids, not enough to hold their attention.

So amazing ! It's a hidden jewel, very educational friendly to my little one who is 1and interesting to my 6 year old. Hands on fun for the kids, beautiful inside, small in size yet tons of stuff to explore. I loved it would go again anytime.
