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 Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

We had a great time there as a family. It was pretty busy, but to be expected on a Saturday with nice weather in Seattle. The staff were kind, helpful, and very informative. The facility was very well-kept, and quite informative. And the cafe upstairs had some tasty food for comparable prices to other restaurants. The gift shop also has a pretty great selection of items.
My son loves to come to the aquarium! There's so much to look at and see. It's cool that they have so many sea creatures that are local to the Puget Sound! The giant octopus are my favorite super cool animals! They also have tropical fish birds and an underwater dome.
