Smaller Aquariums Around Los Angeles

Many smaller aquariums populate our beachside cities. The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium in San Pedro is worth the drive. Aquariums in Santa Monica (Santa Monica Pier Aquarium), Redondo Beach (SEA Lab), and Manhattan Beach (Roundhouse) are also fun for kids.

The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach is the granddaddy of all Los Angeles area aquariums, but crowds and high prices deter many families from visiting very often. There are several smaller aquariums around town that offer great value for an incredibly low admission price.

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium

Cabrillo is much smaller than the Aquarium of the Pacific, but the lack of crowds means kids actually get to see what's floating in the tanks. The main hall offers a variety of exhibits and hits all the fan favorites like giant lobsters, moon jellies, seahorses and sharks. Many of the displays are surprisingly informative. We learned how a clam drops its proboscis into the sand to find food and how fish camouflage in the sand, listened to whale songs, viewed models of the relative sizes of whales, and examined the stuff you find in a mussel bed.

Visitors can touch pink and purple sea stars, anemones and sea urchins in a small outdoor shark pool and "petting area." The kids could touch every single thing in the tank (and they did) because there was no waiting in line.

The Exploration Center gives kids a worm's-eye view of living under a beach. They can also crawl under and inside an aquarium and pretend they are part of a school of fish. Many samples are out for visitors to touch, such as shark egg cases. Microscopes offer a closer view of sea life such as plankton and sea cucumbers. The kids loved investigating like a real scientist. Jars set out on a table contain preserved specimens, such as krill. The center also offers activities perfect for little ones, such as the puppet center and dress up area.

The aquarium lacks food options, but across the parking lot there is grassy area that serves as a perfect beachfront picnic spot. The beach also features a playground.

We bought some cute souvenirs at the gift shop on our way out. The suggested donation is $5 for adults and $1 for children.

SEA Lab

Located in Redondo Beach, the SEA Lab is run by the LA Conservation Corps. There are a few tanks inside the small aquarium containing an octopus and jellyfish, but the star of the SEA Lab is the outdoor petting tanks. Volunteers lead kids on a tour of each tank, explaining facts about the sea life it contains. We were able to pet sea cucumbers, crabs, flounders, anemone, snails, sea slugs, horn sharks, shark eggs, sea stars and rays. My favorite was the anemone, which leaches onto your finger and tries to paralyze you and drag you in for lunch. Luckily our skin is too tough to be penetrated by their sting. Another open tank held fish free swimming in a mini ecosystem. Because it wasn't crowded, we were able to ask a ton of questions of the knowledgeable volunteer.

Santa Monica Pier Aquarium

Run by Heal the Bay, this small aquarium is located under the pier. They host fantastic birthday parties.

Roundhouse Aquarium

This tiny aquarium in Manhattan Beach is located at the end of the pier. It's a fun stop if you're already in Manhattan Beach for a bike ride or to play at the beach, but it's not a destination aquarium.
