Trip Planner: USA / Washington State / Seattle / Seattle Aquarium
Located on Pier 59 with a view of the city, Seattle Aquarium hosts more than 800,000 visitors every year. The aquarium's goals of conservation and preservation mean many visitors take part in the site's educational programs. Some exhibits are interactive, such as the Life of a Drifter display that surrounds visitors with an aquarium full of jellyfish, starfish, and rockfish. You can plan Seattle trip in no time by asking Klarna Trips to help create your itinerary.
Seattle Aquarium reviews
Underwhelming. Unfriendly staff who were on their phones. More geared toward children. Enjoyed seeing the larger sea mammals and the octopus.

If you don't get the chance to visit aquariums often this is a good way to spend a couple of hours. If you love aquariums you'll leave very disappointed. Having been to the aquariums in Baltimore..... more

Hubby liked the fur seals and lion fish. I liked the octopus and anemones. We got right in hardly any wait. It was a sunny Saturday. Staff were friendly. Good experience

are in a good location, on the promenade in the center. there is something to see and even new species of marine life can be discovered. interesting and curious. I think both children and adults will be interested. to see everything about 1-1:30 is enough. there is a cafe and gift shop inside. the guide and the scuba diver who takes care of the fish from inside the aquarium tell interesting things about them. if you want to drive there by car and park for free, then you need to put it against the aquarium that is there. look at the site and only put the car there. what else can be said? I expected more and a little better. I was at the Oregon Aquarium and it's better there, much bigger and interesting and expected something similar, but not bad, okay. There is no queue, you can arrive at the appointed time and immediately go in.
I love going to the Seattle Aquarium so much, I became a member! Great place to bring the family. It’s moderate in size so your kids won’t get too tired but the exhibits are great and the first one is even interactive. We just love seeing the seals and otters as well! You can make park at Pike Place Market Parking Garage and ask to get 2 hours validated when you enter the aquarium. The same parking garage connects to Pike Place Market which opens up your day to many activities!
I came in last week and had an awesome experience here with my girlfriend. We ordered the ticket via our King County Library Card which gave us the free admissions (i.e., one card can take up to at most four people). There are many great and vivid selections, but I love the outside sea otter section the most. The staff are super friendly and knowledgeable to all your curious questions. There are a lot of exhibitions so please take your time to visit them all. I believe there is no free public parking, so you have to pay nearby parking. If you have kids, the aquarium is a great place to learn, enjoy, and spend time with them. Overall, I highly recommend this place to local people, tourists and myself to come back in the near future.
A fantastic aquarium with lots of exhibits and different animals. All the staff was really nice and answered any questions I had. There was a really great area out on the pier to sit and take a break. The seals and the sea otters were very cute. Everything was very well maintained and all the critters were happy and well cared for.
A special place, no matter if it's the first, third, fifth, or seventh time I had been through the aquarium. The local fish and fauna, the exotic, and the information about them is informative and entertaining. It's hard not to get excited thinking about the exhibits and their varied nature's. Touching sting rays, tide pools, and salmon ladders all are some of the things you can see and do. The gift shop isn't bad either. The facility is clean and family friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to bring explorers of all ages. It's not necessary (or hasn't been a single time I've been there) to purchase tickets prior to arrival.
