A great little aquarium. Sign in make a donation if you like and take a walk along the wall of tanks. Each tank offers something new, check out the blow fish or the catfish. Pop upstairs for a view from above the tanks and for the kids a touch tank. Then if you time it right you can see the seal feeding and training of Bumper and Lucy. Both rescued seals whose home the aquarium now is. It's a great place to check out.

Woods hole aquarium is a nice lite place to visit especially with little kids. There are a number if fish tanks with a variety of fish and a small touch take. Please be aware that parking is an issue. You need to park at metered parking and it is at a premium during the summer.

This is small, but very informative with lots of fish and a couple of seals to see. There is a tank to touch crabs and sea stars. It is free!

We saw a lot of families there. Great that it's free! We (couple in our 30s) walked through in 10 min, but it was closing and there was a lot more to read that we didn't. Lucky us-the seal training and feeding was at 4, at closing. Kids loved it, as did I. ;) Glad we swung by on our way back from ferry back to the cape. Parked down the street at meter. 50 cents for 30 min. Some of the fish had things growing on them and their eyes were clouded over. Felt bad for them. :(

I've been coming here since I was a kid with my own parents. It's wonderful to share this free educational experience with my 4 year old. Great way to spend an hour exploring marine life!
