Aquarium of the Bay 3.0 rating

  Children Friendly

The Aquarium of the Bay is the right size for kids, with an underwater tunnel where the fish swim above you as you gaze at them, and ponds where you can touch various live marine animals. It's a perfectly decent aquarium, but many locals would recommend you save your money for the fantastic California Academy of Sciences.
