The Aquarium of The Pacific is awesome! So many Great exhibits. I really enjoyed it. I especially liked the Blue Cavern. It was awesome! My favorite exhibits are the large tanks with not only many different types of fish, but also beautiful sea life, like coral, anemones, etc. My Wife and I went together, but as we went on Labor day there were so many families with kids that were having fun and being incredibly fascinated, etc, band and that made the whole experience more fun for my Wife and myself.
The aquarium is awesome, the addition they've recently built was a bit underwhelming though. I am all for education, which is mostly all their addition is, just some kiosk style self education type things and a really cool theater where you can watch a short film about the environment etc. But a great place to bring the kids or your partner especially if you take the time to read the plaques.
