We love the new exhibits! Touch a Shark and touch a Jelly are awesome! Still love the Touch a Ray. All the faves still there. Awesome!

This place is outstanding. All the animals are fascinating and fun to watch. The seals are fed 3 times a day, so stop by at 11:45, 1:45, or 3:45 to watch. The employees of the Aquarium are very educated and friendly. Stop by the IMAX theatre and watch the video about Great White Sharks.

Amazing! Deserves 5 stars!

My 3 small grandkids (under 6) spent 3 hours cruising through the aquarium. We watched two seal feedings and they enjoyed the hands-on exhibits. Friday afternoon in March -- no crowd!

My office held our Holiday Party here and it was a great success. A cocktail hour was held near the otters which were a delight to watch swim around and dinner was held in the main gallery which is where the seals are kept.

When visiting for normal purposes, the shark tank is a great experience. Overall, the aquarium offers a huge variety of sea life and they really offer visitors a great opportunity to learn about the Coastal Connecticut marine life.
