The Oregon Coast Aquarium

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by robandlynn on June 26, 2005

We actually went on a members-only day, which is by invitation only (the cost of the membership is worth it if you are planning to go a few times, and plus, it is tax deductible). They were opening the turtle exhibit. During this preview, they had an abundance of food. There were tables set up around the aquarium with various food. There was hummus with pita chips, teriyaki chicken, meatballs, fruits, veggies, etc. I thought the food was good, and the kids enjoyed it also. There was a limited amount of benches to sit on and a few rocks out in the courtyard. We were able to see the aquarium after eating and viewing the new exhibit. There were so many types of turtles. We saw the octopus, sea lions, seals, and birds. The kids petted some star fish and sea anemones. There were also crafts for the kids.
