I won't say too much about this place, as it's all been said before by other IgoUgo contributors. I will say this, though: GO! It's fun, it's educational, and you'll spend half a day here. The kids will love it and thank you, as did my niece.

We found the sea otters to be our favorites. Watch them eat ice. It's adorable! Also, when you venture in, there is a rectangular box further down the hall that houses little itty-bitty sea creatures. There is usually a volunteer standing there, in our case a fascinating woman. She knew so much about these creatures and showed us so many things we didn't even realize were alive. We could've watched and listened to her all day. Ask her some questions and have her point out the various sponges, coral, etc. You, too, will be left in awe.
