Concierge.com's insider take:

A cross between an aquarium and a laboratory, the Sea Center, run by the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, makes it possible to play marine scientist for a day. Volunteer staff show how to collect water and sea-life samples from the ocean's bottom (they lower oceanographic equipment into the sea through a trapdoor in the floor). You'll also learn to safely handle little sea creatures like starfish, sea urchins, and even miniature sharks in a special tank with wave action that mimics the ebb and flow of the tide.

Open daily 10 am to 5 pm.
