“Lorakeet exhibit is amazing!”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

Getting there when the aquarium opens is definitely the way to go - we did, and were able to view several exhibits in peace before the masses of children arrived. Go to the lorakeet exhibit when it first opens to feed them - they're very friendly!

“Fantastic Aquarium”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

Got an itch to get yourself an aquarium but don't want all the hassle o maintaining it? Then go to the AOP. It's much easier. Try to go in the mid afternoon. Early in the morning is when all the school kids are there. The place gets almost peaceful after 2pm.

“Easy to experience it all in one day but can get crowded with school field trip groups.”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

For a smaller aquarium they have done an excellent job utilizing all their space well to offer a wide variety of exhibits. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Gift shop is really good and offers a discount with the annual membership which also includes about 5 or 6 parking vouchers. The setting is beautiful on the shoreline in Long Beach Rainbow Harbor area near Shoreline Village. The food is only okay and over priced. If you get an annual pass (family one is great value) you can go eat at a better restaurant (Bubba Gumps is across the street - and lots of other choices within walking distance) and then return to the aquarium. I think they shouldn't charge extra to see the 3-D movie -tickets are around $3 each for a short movie. The overall experience is great - if you are planning ahead for a one time visit I would call them to find a date not booked with school field trips as those groups tend to not be well supervised and loud.
