“Small Aquarium”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

It's a small, free aquarium, most of the animals there have been injured and are there to be taken care of. It's great if you have smaller children. It cost $1.00 to park and it can be done in less than an hour.

“Fun Little Aquarium”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The fish focus on creatures in the waters off New England. After looking through the exhibits go behind the scenes. You can look down on the tanks and see how the aquarium works. While we were there we saw the seal feeding (usually at 11 am) and fish feeding time.

“small but impressive (and free!)”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Perfect for smaller children. After viewing all the tanks, you can head upstairs to the "behind the scenes" gallery to see how the tanks are cared for. There's also a touch tank for more adventurous kids. The seals outside are fun, too. We spent an hour here on a rainy Saturday afternoon and had a great time.

“Small Aquarium”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

This maybe a small aquarium but it is well worth you 1 hour time to visit. Come see the seals being feed at 11AM & 4PM. Get a lesson on how the seals came to be here and what seals are really like. Great education and little known facts.
