The Maritime Aquarium is a small aquarium but is still a great place to visit. The seal and penguin exhibits are my favorite. It's great for kids and school trips because it is a great place to learn about animals.

Great place to visit. Family loved it. Staff was great with explaining sea life to the kids. We will be back. One thing we missed out on was the IMAX movies would love to see more showings...

We were visiting Danbury, CT and there isn't a whole lot to do in Danbury except go some place else so we decided to check out the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk. This aquarium was fairly inexpensive to get into, $12 for adults, however it seemed like it was geared more towards children. It also featured a Prairie Dog exhibit. I just figured it would have more exhibits since it was so close to the coast.

I LOVE aquariums. I used to be a member here when my kids were younger and we went frequently. I haven't been back in a few years, and frankly, it has lost it's luster. There are major renovations underway and I would suggest that they lower their admission fee until it's completed. I will return after February 2012 when everything is complete, and maybe my current opinion will change. Little kids will be entertained, but adults and teenagers will blow through this place in less than an hour and leave feeling empty. Oh, and avoid the cafeteria food. It borders on shameful.
