Seattle Aquarium Reviews & Ratings

  • The touch and feel part of the aquarium stays busy with an abundance of people. It is fun to touch the sea creatures, so find a small opening around the area and gently touch the sea creatures. You won't regret it! My personal favorite area was the seal enclosure! This enclosure is outside on the pier. These creatures are fun to watch them zoom by the glass!

  • My daughter (1 year old) loved this place. She could have stared at the fish for days. We are from out of state so this aquarium was great for us to visit. Nothing like it where we live

  • It's not anything extravagant but they focus on conservation of wildlife which I love about animal based attractions. They've got great touch tanks for kids, or not I'm a grown adult and loved them! And a great walk under dome you can view fish in.

  • Loved this trip to the Aquarium. We saw all the otters and boy were they showing off! The seals were putting on a show of their own. So many beautiful fish and so many people enjoying themselves. It was a great day.

  • Very cute aquarium. The best part is that there are not too many people here. It was not crowded when we came to visit. They has a beautiful selection of fish. The sea lions were also very cute.
