A fascinating study of the Long Island Sound. They have a spectacular touch and hold area for children as well as a area for them to sit and play with nautical items. There is an area where you can watch them hatching and raising more marine life. Feeding time with the seals and sea lions is so much fun. There is a wonderful IMAX theatre also. The food in the cafeteria was good.

This is a great place for all ages. They have alot of interactive displays. A large I-Mix movie theatre and summer time trip out to Long island Sound. The staff is very helpful and no question goes unanswered. Worth a trip to see this place.
