Amazing, informative, fascinating and interested all set in a stunning location.
It was my 10 year old daughter's first time here, fathers day fun. We both were excited to be here, so much to see and activities for kids. Our favorite must have been the sea otter feeding and they're play time, it got everyone laughing.
Weather was perfect. My company was great and the accommodations were fantastic......
There's a reason why many rate this the 1 aquarium in the world. It is a well-deserved title. So many activities and exhibits for kids. It was just my wife and myself and with having seen one 'show' only the otter feeding, we spent 4.5 hours there! The various types of jellyfish were my favorite! Well worth the money and time. You can even leave for a while and come back later that day! My wife used her ipad to take awesome pics of the tanks and their inhabitants, too.
Wonderful. Brought my Chinese visitors there and they were spellbound all day.
The aquarium is an awesome place to visit. We loved the exhibits and learned a lot it was amazing to see all the sea creatures and we even got a chance to touch and hold some of them! The ocean views are spectacular and the staff was amazing!
Anyone going to Monterey must see the Aquarium. Really wonderful.
IT WAS GREAT, I FORGOT TO PRINT OUT THE TICKETS BEFORE I LEFT AND DIDN'T, BUT I HAD THE CONFIRMATION SHEET WITH ME. WHEN I ARRIVED THERE AND SHOWED THEM MY PAPER, AND CALLED FOR A SUPERVISOR TO SEE WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR ME. WELL THE STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL I GAVE THEM THE PAPER AND SAID THAT THEY WOULD TAKE CARE OF IT AND LET US THRU. I HOPE IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO RETURN AGAIN...
Beautiful exhibits! The family area is awesome. We didn't even have small children but, enjoyed the exhibits and friendly volunteers
It was amazing not only we have fun but the kids learn so much

This was my second visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I took my son when he was 1 and this time we went he was almost 3. This was a perfect age. There was tons for him to do and he has a blast. He woke up the next morning asking if we were going to see the fishes again!
Worth every penny. Great for little ones and adults. This is the best Aquarium on the west coast. Get there early to miss the crowds. Even when there are a lot of people in the Aquarium it is easy to see all the events and sites. The jelly fish are my favorite. The items in the gift shop are reasonable priced.
A stunning experience. The presentation from the shallows to the deep was done with intelligence and forethought, taking the visitor deeper into the depths as he or she progressed through the displays.
Awesome, Amazing and a good time had by all. It is overwhelming at first and seems to be of a maze to venture through but be sure to see it all! It takes a good two hours or you have missed something! Definitely get your tickets ahead of time or you will be in a very long, slow line to the ticket counter. A must see if in the area.
