    We take this opportunity to visit the Aquarium a rainy day. It's not very big but it is worthwhile to see the fish in the ponds and the very good explanation of how the marine ecosystem in Cape Cod throughout the year.

    A very quaint Little aquarium. It is free to get in. If you looked at everything and read the literature on the displays you can be in an out in half an hour. My family really enjoyed it.

    Beautiful aquarium! Lovable Harbor Seals! Very informative and free. It was hard to find parking but the long walk from the car was well worth it!

    This is the first aquarium in the US. Our family enjoyed the educational and marine exhibits. It is a fairly short journey through. Don't forget to stop and see the seals outside!

    Nice way to kill some time waiting for a ferry or looking for something to do on a rainy day. Lots of interesting information about the Wood's Hole area and the fishing and conservation history of the Institution. Not many exhibits, but it's more of a research place than a sightseeing place. Don't miss the touch tank upstairs.

    Very small, good exhibits but wasn't what I was expecting. It's free tho so it's worth checking out.
