Perfect sized SeaLife Center with sensational bay views. The staff was eager to answer any question we had. Worth the admission and time away from the outdoor beauty Seward offers.

This is an excellent place to sea various types of sea life that exists within Alaska. It's an excellent place to take small children or adults visiting the area. Beautiful displays and a great place to learn about the sea life in the Alaskan waters.

We heard there was a baby Walrus that was saved and on the mend at the SeaLife Center. It was adorable to watch. There are many exhibits to see and it was worth the stop and visit. I highly recommend especially if you have children.

Loved seeing all the animals and knowing that they were well taken care of especially the rescued ones. My 9 year old nephew just couldn't get enough of the all the baby animals. This was a beautiful facility.

This is our favorite indoor activity in all of Alaska. Our must see recommendations for this site are--the marine bird exhibit with Dory the puffin, the sea lions, the octopus exhibit with its pregnant octopus, and the rescued baby walrus. The center has an I.Sea.U...More

Contact the Alaska Sealife Center directly. I believe they have regularly scheduled behind the scenes tours, but probably do them on special requests also. The staff is very informative and available for questions.
