I havent been to Mystic Aqarium since I was a kid. Although the day we went this past May was a very cool, damp, rainy, and drizzly day, most of the attractions are indoors. This is full of interesting information and dazzling displays of Marine Life. I think the most impressive attraction were the beluga whales. I highly reccommend this... More

This place can be great. A lot find it to be. I had a few issues with it. First, the 4d ride is not good...avoid, and the location and spacing of GHS snack bar is really poor and can be dangerous. ...meaning food spillage due to people traffic. Other then those two things, the place is great. The whales are... More

We went here and as young adults we had so much fun! You can learn a lot about the animals but the best part is getting to see how happy they seem to be. The belugas came right up to the glass and were being very social. The ray tank was the highlight for my fiancé, he loved getting to... More

I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the vast array of displays at this aquarium! Even after spending a couple of hours exploring the outdoor exhibits I was shocked to see how much there was to see inside as well! The aquarium campus is kept very clean , animals appear to be well cared for and there is a... More

Arrived early and parked close to entrance, parking is free and has picnic area for those that bring their own. Like anywhere else, the later you arrive then further you park. Stayed 2 1/2 hours and it was busy but not crazy. Everybody friendly and helpful adn knew their area and the animals. Many discounts available, Military, Senior, AARP, group,... More

When we brought 2 teenagers to Mystic fo several days we had no idea what we would do with them. They were not interested in doing some of the major attractions like the Seaport. However the Aquarium was a hit. My Granddaughter loved the Exhibit on the Titanic ( she had seen the movie 12 times). In fact we all... More

We purchased the value tickets which include admission , Birds of the Outback where you can feed the birds and the Rio 4D show. The $D show lasted about 5 minutes and left you with a pain in the back from where the seat mechanism jabs you in the back with no correlation to the show. The aquarium itself was... More

We have been to Mystic Aquarium before. We returned because my daughter is a lover of all animals including those of the sea and it's a great stopping point on the way from NJ to Cape Cod. We can easily complete the aquarium in a few hours (1/2 day tops). I would highly recommend spending some time by the belugas,... More
