On a cold or wet day, fun for the family. Found this on a cold wet day and thought what the heck, why not. Nice little aquarium for the kids to spend some time and investigate the wonders of the sea.

I'm born & raised on the cape and in my opinion those animals look a bit rough maybe because a lot are rescues but you would think they would start to look more healthy after a while, and also they are a bit overrated for a petting zoo (not to mention expensive).. Aqua Circus was WAY better; once the sea... More

Only thing going for this place is that the animals are rehab projects that can't be returned to the wild. Should focus more on education as the facility itself is wildly run down. Animal containment areas are small. It's a pretty sad place. If they are serious about rehab, they should really focus on that. Can't recommend. Felt sorry for... More

We took our 12 year old, we walked through in less then ten min. Not very much to see, spend your money else where.

My kids ask to go here every year. Though it is not flashy or fancy it is a wonderful chance to see and interact with animals that were injured or hurt and unable to be released back to the wild. And we absolutely love Gus the chocolate Lab

It's a nice little Zoo they even have a Pony Ride for little kids. I just thought it was a little pricy for what they had to offer.

My daughter and I were visiting the Cape in mid August. Our second day was cloudy so my daughter who is in college suggested the Zooquarium. It is great for young children, but she and I immensely enjoyed our visit. Admission is very reasonable and the man at the desk (Red Sox fan) was friendly and informative. There are interesting...

It was a just okay experience...the big tank used to have a sea lion show but now it's just a pool with algae on the bottom. The bird show that they have in there now is really not much of a show. There was a kestrel that flew around several times just past our ears, a red tailed hawk that... More

The Zooquarium has animals that are native species to Massachusetts that were injured, have been rehabilitated and are unable to be released back into the wild. There is a "marine" section with fish, turtles and other water creatures. Outside were various animals such as foxes, a bobcat, and skunks. There was a farm animal area with pony rides and places...
