Visitors with kids should plan to spend at least half a day at the aquarium—it's chock-full of activities and interactive exhibits designed just for children. Among the daily doings are shows with dolphins, sea lions, and the resident beluga whales; otter-feeding sessions; and the new Clownfish Cove, where kids can handle starfish and other gentle sea creatures in touch pools, watch puppet shows, join in sing-alongs, and create sea-themed arts and crafts. The little darlings will be screaming with delight—which is why anyone liking a quiet aquarium experience should plan to go after 4 p.m., when families tend to clear out.

Open 9:30 am to 5 pm September through June, 9:30 am to 7 pm July and August.
