It is very nice and easily reached from BART by grabbing a streetcar. Unfortunately, most of the exhibits were too high for my 19-month-old granddaughter. Pictures I'd seen featured the beautiful surround tank and I'd assumed others would be as easy for her. Even when she stood on steps provided at the pools, her short arms were too far from the opportunities to "pet." We will definitely return when she is taller.

It was one of the most fascinating experiences for me and my family. It was breathtaking! Best of all, there are staff members that you can ask very difficult marin life animal questions. They answer very quickly and absolutley enjoy their job! That makes the experience even better. At the gift shop. we found very great gifts! The downside though, photos are way too expensive Personally they should be $10, not almost $24.00. or $36 for three.
