  • The place was beautiful !! The grounds offer picnic area and a fishing pier. The exhibits were very interesting but the building was small

  • My family and I had a great time here! It isn't very big, a place to spend either 30mins or a couple hrs. I do wish it were larger. The staff is very friendly and informative. Kids and adults of all ages can have a good time here. It's based on Maine ocean life and even though we are Mainahs we still learned a lot and the kids and adults have a wonderful time with the touch tanks.
  • Perfect day trip for families. The small aquarium is packed with fascinating local creatures. The opportunity to pet a shark is always a hit with the kids.
  • Very small but excellent aquarium that shows off the local marine wildlife very well. The main attraction is a huge touch tank with crabs, snails,lobsters, starfish that you can hold. It will not take very long to see everything at the aquarium, but it is all very well presented.
  • Saw and learned about aquatics. Got to actually touch sea life including sharks. Saw 2 albino lobsters
  • What an awesome day we had
