“Fun and educational.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

I like the maritime aquarium. It's not a big place but it' fun, educational and entertaining when you need something to do that's calm and educational for the children.

Our entire family have visited numerous times. It is a very nice venue, always something new and/or interesting. They really cater to young children. Safe area, well maintained.

“A "must see" in Fairfield County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

You can go back many times and year and see new exhibitions. An IMAX theatre is next door. South Norwalk (known locally as "SoNo") has some excellent restaurants.

“Fun place to play.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

We live near to the aquarium and have been members for almost 5 years now. Our kids breeze through pretty quickly but it is an educational place for them to play and they enjoy learning about all of the local marine animals, as well as ones from far away. Can't wait for the renovations to be done.
