Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is an educational center that includes a research library and marine life exhibits. It is super affordable; they ask for a $5 donation per adult. It’s not as touristy as most of the other aquariums I’ve been to but it has a lot to see. In one building you can look at a bunch of different sea stuff under microscopes. In another there are some sort of experiments going on and you can kind of look around and see what’s happening with all of the lab equipment. In the main area there are rooms filled with taxidermy/fossil/bone displays and other rooms with aquariums of live animals. Outside is a touch pool that is only open at certain times of day and we were able to go out there and hear a little talk and touch things like anemones and starfish and limpits.
