  • It's a good place to see what marine animals are in the area. Small enough so little ones don't get over tired yet big enough for the older kids. Interactive petting tank is fun!  more »

  • What a fantastic place. The displays are informative. All volunteers are friendly and knowledgeable. We got to pet fish, fish on the dock and do arts and crafts. Loved it.
  • It's literally just one small room with what seems to be the fish they went out and caught that morning. Long drive for no payoff. Disclaimer: you do get to hold a lobster, though.
  • Beautiful little place! Lots of fun for kids and adults. Worth a visit if you are in the area!
  • It was a fun trip for my daughter and I. For a four year old girl, there was plenty to explore for a couple of hours, and the touch tank was informative and fun.
  • It's small enough for the little ones and the touch tank was awesome. The Discovery center for crafts is a nice option, too.
