  • My teen wanted to go in, because she loves aquariums. There was a lot of local information/displays. We loved the sting ray touch tank.  more »

  • Terrific place. Multiple floors for exploration. Kids are able to see so many different types of fish and other mammals while the adults lean some cool factoid. We spent about two hours there and felt...  more »

  • I came here for a quick trip from Providence to get away and enjoy a magnificent day with my partner. We loved the service and attention of the staff here. We learned so much even as adults. It is small, but there are so many cool things to discover about our next door neighbors in the sea right here in R.I. Definitely a great place to spend an hour or so with the kids or just on a date around town. You can also after the aquarium, head to the beach and enjoy of a swim, if it is hot enough, or walk around, pick up many pretty shells, and enjoy the views if it is not.
  • Small, manageable up close aquarium displays, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Informative and fun exhibits.
  • The staff are great here. It is a small building but you can learn a bunch. They have touch tanks and demonstrations. Our GS troop really had fun and felt welcome.
  • So dissapointed, tried to come today only to be told all parking was reserved. They told us to go to the next lot that was $20 to park. My mother just had knee surgery and has a difficult time walking far. I wish your website would have told us there would be no parking due to a wedding. Smh. My son was upset. Anyone trying to go there i recommend going early to insure you have a place to park.
  • Good place for fish lovers, If you would like to pet aquatic life or be educated about them, it's not a big place but its fun.
