A high quality facility that has great exhibits and is very family friendly, but it always feels small to me, especially for the cost of admission. I've gone several times and finished seeing everything in about two hours. By contrast, in the aquariums in Long Beach, CA, and Camden, NJ, I ran out of time before I did exhibits.

A small but nice aquarium with a focus on local sea life. Would be great for kids.

From shipwrecks and seabirds to seals and jellyfish, this aquarium is all about the wildlife unique to the Oregon Coast and beyond. Don't miss out on their otter exhibit-- it's the cutest thing ever.

For its size its a great aquarium. However If your not really into aquariums it doesn't offer to much more than any other one.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium is home to over 500 species of animals in both indoor and outdoor exhibits (it's also the former home of Keiko, the movie star Orca). Check out the Passages of the Deep, meet sea otters, jellyfish and more!

I don't live in Oregon, but I've been here quite a few times. I have to go every time I'm in Oregon, I love it! It's a really nice, family friendly aquarium.
