“Fantastic spot, lovely educators.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great place to go for the day, lots of educators working at every level of curiosity, even with kids. Great bird watching place, lots of rarae sitings. Day trips out with educators, wonderful experience. One man named Harvey P was the best teacher ever!!!!!

“Seaside museum w/interesting wildlife, inside & out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Joppa Flats Education Center & Sanctuary is a fun little museum for families who love the ocean. There are exhibits w/ a touch tank inside & spaces outside to explore along the mud flats. I believe Audubon members get a discount on tickets. There is a butterfly garden outside the back of the museum which is beautiful when in bloom. Definitely follow this visit up with a trip to Plum Island Sanctuary. You can explore the dune side or take a short walk on boardwalks through the marsh. Lots of wildlife in the area at both places. Worth a day-long field trip.

“We stumbled upon this place and were pleasantly surprised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Keeping four kids under the age of nine entertained without breaking the bank is a challenge but this placed helped out a lot! We stopped in figuring it would be a ten minute stop and ended up staying two hours! There were touch tanks, a craft, and even a man outside helping the kids catch butterflies. It was wonderful!!!

“Audubon did it right with this one as always!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Mass. Audubon reclaimed a decimated marshland and developed a great education center. The butterfly garden is fantastic, with flowers that attract many varieties. Lots of classes and excursions.
