The Aquarium is awesome, but it is expensive and crowded. It isn't a place we visit every time we are at the coast. Hatfield is! Their displays are education, interesting, and very well thought out. Check them out to at least visit the octopus and check out the tide pool. And remember to give a donation!

Well worth the visit, right next to the aquarium. A big octopus to see close up. Lots of other cool stuff.

The marine science center is free but a donation is requested. This place is very entertaining with many exibits built by students at Oregon State University that deal with ocean science. Worth a visit along with the Aquarium.
