My husband and I took our 2 children here. It's a small little museum even with the 2 floors, but the displays were interesting and we enjoyed our time there. We were there on the off season, so found a close place to park, but I can see how it would be impossible to find a parking place during the summer. Admission is free, although we left a donation.

I really wanted to see a seal, so I knew that would have one here. The attraction is free with a suggested donation. We had a really good time, getting a chance to see up close all the fish and other creatures you can see in the ocean around Cape Cod. There is also a petting area where you can touch a starfish and other sea life. Oh, and I found a seal, two to be exact. They were playful and fun to watch, We missed feeding time which I believe is at 4PM. Nice chance to learn about the ocean and spend an hour.

Our guide made WHOI come alive -- He was knowledgeable and friendly. A+

We liked it all and even got to see the Knoor docked for repairs. We would have loved to been able to go aboard for a closer look!

If you there during the summer, make sure you get on the list for the behind the scenes tour. It was amazing!
