About 30% of the visit scheduled for our 2nd grade class trip visit was wasted by aquarium management or their assigns inexplicably making all our children wait for no reason in the parking lot for close to 30% of the allotted total visit time. Therefore 1/3 of the money should be refunded to our class if fairness mattered. The kids' time is lost irrevocably besides the money because we could have done something more constructive with these kids. And I recommend other school classes not visit here for the same reasons. The kids apparently enjoyed the scant 40 minutes they did have at the place at least. Not worth the trip across the state and the lost class time, overall though.

So much fun! My two year old said "wow" a minimun of fifty times. My wife and I had as much fun as he did. The exhibits were big, all the animals looked healthy to my untrained eye. The place was clean, busy but not too crowded. We touched stingrays and watched feeding time for the seal. It was a great afternoon and will definitely be back.

Great place to visit with kids. Easy to get to, parking was a cinch, and spent about 2 hours there with kids wanting to stay longer. It was a bit dusty - it could use a thorough vacuuming - but otherwise was a worthwhile visit on a rainy day.

A wonderful little aquarium, Jenkinson's offers stunning moments to see and interact with nature's beautiful marine animals and birds. The aquarium features educational material pertaining to several global and local environmental causes. For film buffs, the aquarium also houses a very large movie set model used for Mutiny on the Bounty. The restrooms are very clean and the water inside runs hot. I only took off a star in my rating because the aquarium rarely features marine flora. The kelp forest is a notable exception.

I had so much fun. Definitely a kids place. The only not so good thing is that the prices can be cheaper. I totally recommend it though.
