Activity Overview

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located in the coastal San Pedro district in Los Angeles, California. The aquarium opened in 1935 as a small collection of marine specimens. A new building and a few decades later - the aquarium has expanded to include more exhibits and habitats, with more focus on the marine life of South California.

Things to Do

  • See the animals - conveniently divided into different ecosystems as zones, you could see which animals live in various habitats in the wild.
  • Enjoy the interactive exhibits - crawl in through the aquarium to imagine yourself as one of the marine creatures or walk through the mud tunnel, and experience what worms see inside - a great learning experience
  • Touch some of the animals - go on, they won't bite. Be gentle though!
  • Attend an event - throughout the year, the museum hosts several events like whale watching and tidepool walks. This will be a good addition to your educational day out.
  • Shop at the gift shop - offering good value for money on souvenirs

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium Insider Tips

  • The museum is technically free but it is suggested that you donate $5 for adults and $1 for children to the museum. The museum is entirely funded by donations so the suggested donation price isn't quite bad.
  • There is a tidal pool, a beach (Cabrillo Beach), and a coastal park (gardens & marshes) behind the museum, where you can enjoy the rest of your day after your museum excursion.
  • There is a parking fee - $1 an hour, which won't break the bank. This also goes to the upkeep of the aquarium.
