“Nice small aquarium but very educational. Great for young children.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This is a great place for local schools and tourist. It is a small but very educational aquarium. Woods Hole is famous for it's ocean science. It's worth it to stop by the aquarium.

“great little aquarium”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We live nearby and go here every year. My kids don't seem to get tired of it. It is very small but also is free (donations). A great little diversion for kids if you are exploring wood's hole (an interesting little town). Has a tank where kids can touch fish, crabs, etc.

“Great stop with kids”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

One of the few spots to stop with kids in Woods Hole. A great place to see rescued seals, a blue lobster and other local aquatic animals. Everyone will enjoy this stop.

“great family fun”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

we went to the aquarium just on a whim and it is a great place to visit good local gem :) I was told in the warmer months the seals are out all the time and if you go at 11 am you can see them get fed and learn a little
