Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Though indoor areas are temporarily closed, outdoor areas (including shark, penguin, seal and sea lion habitats) are open. Outdoor-only admission costs $12.

Dedicated as much to education as entertainment, this aquarium justifies the drive down to Long Beach. Inevitably, the shark lagoon and its touchable habitat is the most popular exhibit. Other highlights include the adorable sea otter habitat and the low-key but fascinating Whales: Voices of the Sea. Much of the rest of the aquarium is divided geographically: loveable sea lions in the Southern California section, all kinds of garish fish in the tropical Pacific area and a variety of exotic creatures in the Gulf of California exhibit. You’ll also find an immersive theater and a variety of interactive, eco-minded info stations at the Pacific Visions expansion.
