Nice people working there, it is fixed up nice, lots of animals. Can't beat the price(free). Worth going out of your way to see, bring the kids. Don't forget to leave a donation!

It's not an aquarium. It's a very small place and if you're in downtown Poulsbo you should stop by, check it out, and by all means donate.
The staff seems like volunteers that really enjoy what they do.
They've got local fishies, and an octopus! And you can pet stuff! And a video to watch.
And for the record - I'm in my 30's. And I enjoy this kind of stuff. It's not just for tiny people.

A must do with the family,
It's an above ground re creation of what's just under your feet. Best for 3-6 year olds, it's fun!

I wouldn't go here as a destination, but it can provide an interesting side trip to shopping on Front Street.

Very small place, but what do you expect for free? (donations gladly accepted.) staff was friendly and full of enthusiasm and information. They were gathering specimens from Liberty bay as we got there and they showed us what the days catch was! Touch pool Is a hit with kids. Movies in the hall if you want to sit and learn.
