I chaperoned on a first grade field trip and it was a big success. I've been there several times before and each time the children have a wonderful time. And it is even educational!

On those winter days when you think you are going to go out of your mind, take the kids here. There are very few steps, so the kids can walk and run and have a good time moving around. You get to see the animals.

The aquarium is not huge but a great place to bring younger kids. My daughter is 16 now so we don't go as often as when she was young but now I also love taking the family to all the IMAX movies to learn more about nature and the world.

This is a great aquarium and specializes in the sea life found along the Connecticut shoreline. The Jelly Fish exhibit is outstanding. So is the Shark Tank, and it has bleachers so that families can really get the feeling of being with the sharks. There is also an IMAX Theatre and a section on boat making. An all around great Aquarium for a family trip.

This aquarium has a little bit of everything. The seal feeding is a most see. The new exhibits are hands on and fun for the family. This place is great over and over again.
