I thought the new center would be such a great place to see, and it is very disappointing. Hardly anything to see and left after about 20 minutes. The old center had much more to see and the staff were much more helpful too.

We went to the beach there was a couple smoking pot and no one seem to care. The Long Island Sound water is very different from open ocean water. The water is muddy with a lot of seaweed floating around. Madison, Ct is not a town that is friendly to visitors. They charge $10 dollars an hour to use there town beaches and Hammonasset charges 22 dollars on the weekends for non residents. Basically they telling visitors to stay the hell out.

We were at Meigs Point on July 1, 2019 and the new center was actually closed. We had been looking forward to seeing it again. The old center was open. We'll try again.

This is a great place to take kids. They have several aquariums and a touch tank for kids of all ages and a gentle, caring staff. They also have a multi-purpose learning center. Go see it and take your kids. Regards, OldeBear
