Fodor's Review

This destination has exhibits on the history of the harbor, ocean explorers, and scientific aspects of the Pacific Ocean. There's a fleet of ship models: some date to 1798, and one is made entirely of gold and silver. Other fun features include a touch tank holding local sea creatures and a lab for kids that encourages innovation. Summer hours vary.
