  • The place was very nice and the staff were very friendly. Not very big but nice. Unfortunately, the aquarium was closed when we went. Wanted to see that. We still enjoyed ourselves.  more »
  • Being a long time lover of the string of coastal beauties that Gloucester rests in the midst of, it's hard to explain why it stands out to me. It just does! If I had to choose just one place to sit, e...  more »
  • Water and ships define the heart of the city; it calms down to a quiet town in the winter, but it is a bustling place in Spring & Summer, because of what you can do on the water. Don't miss it: this i...  more »

  • They were all very nice and would answer any questions you may have. The only thing that kept me from giving a 5 was the fact that they seemed to always keep the whales on the starboard side so if you see them on the port side and had a great view they were sure to turn. Another thing is that we weren't allowed to be on the front of the upper level. If we were we could have seen much better
  • Glooucester's maritime traditions are a part of American history. You can learn much more at this museum.
  • So it go like this i witness only good things about this wonderfull educational place to visit and learn some thing extraordinarily display in a way that it all become amazing sea out there
  • Service was quick and civil, but could have been nicer. Food tasted frozen - kind of funny considering it's right on the harbor.
  • This was such a disappointment, we walked in with 30 minutes to closing and were notified that they would be closing soon!! We said we were ok with that as we wanted to see the animals. Here is what we saw: two-three aquariums with fish, the lab had bunch of fogged up and unclear water with supposedly fish inside?? In addition they had bunch of European green crabs that some were in tuppaware and some were in a huge plastic bin. When asked what they were being fed, we were told nothing... they eat things in the water? And anyhow they were to be frozen soon....? This whole ordeal took us about 6 minutes so we decided to check out the museum part, that took another 3 minutes of exhibits that were broken and non-operative. Waste of money, but hopefully they will buy those crabs some food!
