Very nice exhibits of many different Alaskan sea life. Much better than some larger places we have been to. It was a pleasant surprise during our trip to Seward.

Diving seabirds, Murres, in a deep windowed tank. Living saltwater Invertebrates you can touch. And a rescued baby walrus. Plus loads of real science, ocean-saving exhibits. The Center is splendid and it gives you hope.
