Was a delightful place. I have no reason I can really fathom to give a place where you can observe and learn about sea life like this anything less than five stars. A little chilly inside, but otherwise a great place to visit if you are traveling through.
The Alaska SeaLife Center is a pretty awesome place to visit. They have a bunch of exhibits that is set up more of an educational place rather than a zoo or park. The facility seemed to be very well taken care of and the animal habitats were all pretty clean. It's enjoyable for all ages. A must-stop when visiting Seward.
