Want to know about the marine life in Alaska? This is the place to go. It's not a big museum just a small place downstairs but definitely worth the trip.

Tank was filled with local fish. Touch tank was fun. A lady cleaning the tank's glass spent 15 minutes explaining what we were seeing she was really, really nice and helpful. Her narrative made the visit!
