An Afternoon at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach California Mar 08, 2008
I spent a very nice afternoon at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach California. My review on this is mixed:

1. I had a very nice time, no doubt about it; but it was smaller than I anticipated and so I was a *little* let down on number of halls etc. It wasn't bad, and it wasn't tiny - but for the $20.00 price tag, I would have liked to see a bit more.

2. It wasn't too crowded; granted, it was a Monday afternoon, but still it was nice to have time to move around and not be in a huge crowd.

3. They had a some options I didn't take advantage of, so I can't speak to them - a couple different options for movies.

4. It appeared they had a nice little show for the otters and seals that people were really enjoying.

All said, it was a great place to burn a couple of hours and practice taking pictures - but it wasn't a cheap thing to do.
Love the neon blue glow...
Not sure, but I love the nose

I went here once when I was visiting our port facilities at Long Beach (Maersk). Even got to stay on the Queen Mary docked at the other side of the bay across from the aquarium. I agree - small aquarium but still nice.

Aquarium of the Pacific Dec 27, 2006
My husband and I were looking for something to do one day, so we went to Long Beach to the Aquarium of the Pacific. The drive to Long Beach (from Torrance) was really nice. As for the aquarium, I wasn't really that impressed. It was ok for an aquarium, but not that great for an aquarium by the ocean. They had more stingrays than anything. That was the majority of what I saw. Maybe it was just the time I went. I would go back again, because I like aquariums. I just won't have high expectations. It was a fine outting otherwise.

That's good to know, I always see that place, but haven't been inside. Have you been to Monterey Aquarium or Sea World in San DIego?
