This is a great Aquarium to visit !
There was something to see and enjoy for all ages and members of the family.
We even got free tickets to Madame Tussaud next door and that was an unexpected treat!
The aquarium is highly recommended!

Packed with family-friendly entertainment, quality hotels, and good food, there’s something for everyone at Fisherman’s Wharf. From street performers and historic cable cars to art galleries and museums, a postcard-worthy photo is available on every corner. Bring your appetite: seafood lovers will be rewarded with Dungeness crab and sourdough bread bowls, while Ghirardelli Square will satiate anyone’s sweet tooth
