We went here for the day, but ended up staying for 2 hours. Woods Hole is very small and does not have much to do. If you do choose to go here don't plan a full day unless you are heading out to the vineyard.

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.

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!
