Steinhart Aquarium Reviews & Ratings
I remember going as a kid and it was much better. They remodeled and took away a lot of the good stuff. Only old school SF kids would remember. My niece was in awe of the place. I didn't take that from her. But me I was sad of all the changes.
Loved it. Especially the planetarium. Remember to book your tickets for the planetarium as one of the very first things when you arrive.
Beautiful creatures, kid and adult friendly. Great for class field trips and family outings. It would take at least 2 days to experience it all well.
Absolutely amazing. It's amazing. If ever given the chance, go you will not regret it
Loved it as a child, still do, had to get used to the new building but they did an amazing job with their aquatic exhibits(except the alligator gars are in a dark tank, perhaps the light burned out?). My children like it, youngest, like me loves all the live exhibits, you can see species in naturalistic habitats. Dinosaurs out back for the kiddos👬👫👭🌲🌴🐊🐌🐞🐛
