“good for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Nice displays of fish, turtles, other sea life. The facility was smaller than I expected, though. It has nice restroom facilities, which are hard to find in Woods Hole.

“FISH FISH FISH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

What a great informative spot, and the price is right! Donations only! They have a small pool outside where they keep recovering seals. Last year the poor little guy had been attacked by a shark. Unfortunately, the pool was closed for maintenece the day we were there. Saw lots of beautiful fish, all kinds, all colors. Nice for families!

“The Landmark”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

How can there be anything negative to say about Wood Hole Oceanographic Institute! They have a great little aquarium, and some of their research ships...though you may not be able to board them just seeing them, and knowing what great studies they do for, about and to care for our seas~ We Love you Woods Hole Oceanographic Institue and thank you for being there!
