This is a lovely aquarium. It was great to see the divers in the water tending to the fish. We saw some specimens we had never seen before. Very interesting place.

This aquarium is really well done. Something for everyone! We went early on a summer weekday and had the place to ourselves for a little while. Feeding the Lorikeets is a must!

Nice Aquarium and reasonable price of admission but after being able to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium many times spoils you. This aquarium isn't as large and not as impressive. That said, still a great way to spend half a day in Long Beach.
