Visit the Aquarium

Our aquarium exhibits feature local marine life from the Puget Sound and the Salish Sea and includes a replica of a tide pool where visitors can interact with sea stars, sea anemones, and much more.  Educational movies about the ocean are playing all day in our Theater, and the Hall of Art showcases marine-inspired pieces by local artists.  Stay and play interactive educational games and make drawings in the Art Room.  Enjoy the views of Liberty Bay and the Olympic Mountains peeking over the horizon from our outdoor deck.  Aquarium exhibits and animals living in the aquarium change periodically for variety and by seasonal availability, so come visit again and again!
