Their exhibits will teach you and your children about elephant seal behavior, understanding the role of sea otters in their ecosystem, observing the differences in plant and animal life in different tidepools, and you can learn more about the hearing of sea lions and harbor seals.

It is a marine science museum & aquarium, with hands-on exhibits, a touch pool & a gift shop.
