The staff was so ready to help kids explore the touch tank and try out the VR. We are so thankful for this addition to the Stonington community.

Stopped by with few expectations...on that day, they had three rare lobsters in the tank. One was blue (1 in 2 million), a calico (1 in 30 mil), and a two-tone (red on one side, black on the other: 1 in 50 mil). The chance of all three being in the same place was one in 90 quadrillion! Sweet! The lobsterman who showed them to us had been at sea for 65 years and had never seen a two-tone.

Seeing a blue lobster and one that is half red and half natural color was a sight never seen before. The virtual glasses to see a lobster man hauling lobsteers, kayaking and other sites on the island was a unique experience but cool.

This is a wonderful little stop. Not a big museum, but a very doable exhibit that is entertaining and very enjoyable.
