“New England Sea Life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2011

The best place to view the local sea life without getting wet. But if you don't mind getting wet, check out the touch tanks in the back of the aquarium.....they aren't just for kids.

“Under the Sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2011

This is small but much thought was put into the exhibits to make it very child friendly. My husband and I were with friends who have 16 month old daughter. She absolutely loved it! There are touch tanks where children can touch lobsters, tautogs, quahogs, horseshoe crabs, spider crabs, sea stars (starfish), and hermit crabs. She kept wanting to go back to that one. Also many tanks of amazing fish and other marine life. Check out the HUGE turtles displayed on the wall! This was a fun one, and definitely worth putting a donation into the donation box!
