While visiting Bar Harbor we wanted to ensure we stopped at the Ocenarium because our friends had raved about their visit this past year. We walked into the building and were warmly greeted by the owner and staff. They were so friendly from the moment we arrived. We proceeded to have a lengthy conversation with the owner about the lobster industry in Maine that was so informative. The lobster hatchery was extremely interesting. Our favorite part was the discovery pool where we got to see and touch starfish, horseshoe crabs, sea urchins and all kinds of fun specimen. The lovely woman teaching us all about these creatures was delightful, humorous, was full of facts and encouraged crowd participation. I highly recommend visiting the Oceanarium whether you are traveling with kids or on your own.
