Marine Science Center, Daytona Beach Reviews

  • Walking up to the door you get to see some of what's inside, once you get to the counter to pay we found out that they are only charging$2 per person since they are renovating. It's small but really neat inside, they have a classroom with some amazing things, there's several nice size fish aquariums with fish that you don't see in other places. One of the neatest items they have is a really big, with a lot of detail, mosquito. The turtle area is really neat to watch how they have rescued and rehabilitated all of them. It will worth the little bit of money.

  • We visited here while on vacation. The touch tank area was under renovation so they were only charging $2 for admission. There are some tanks set up with different types of fish, and other aquatic life. The sea turtle rescue area was very informative. There is also a nature trail with an observation tower that you can check out. The staff was extremely informative and very friendly.

  • What a cool place to visit after a short drive south from Daytona Beach! There is parking right off the main street (Lighthouse Dr.) in the area. There a numerous nature walking paths with one leading to an observation tower. At the actual science center, there are a few rooms with numerous exhibits! They have all sorts of facts and information about tons of different species. They have local fish, turtles (including rehabilitating sea turtles!), and other sorts of aquatic species here. It is very kid and family friendly, with them also having a few “touch tanks”. They have a tiny gift store between the entrance and the exhibit gallery. This place does get a little crowded but overall, it is without a doubt worth visiting if you are in the area.

  • I bought one of my favorite shirts I have come this gift store! It is a great place to visit with family. The gal that was walking around with us was extremely kind, nice, and helpful. This is a must stop every time we come to Florida. We're from Kansas and will absolutely be back next time we're are around!!!

  • Affordable family outing. They were working on renovations so admittance was only $2/person. Good place to spend a couple hours. Multiple aquarium displays, turtle rescue area, window for viewing turtle medical procedures, wild bird rehab center, education rooms indoors and out, and cute gift shop. Not a very large place but well done. Not like a big zoo or large city aquarium. Still recommend.
