Love the seals and the informational show that the students put on. Also we get to see many aquariums of the fish that we have native to our region.

small and quick - no entrance fee, just a donation. Great place to see some awsome fish!! Watch them feed the seals, and get a little history!

A great place to take your children. Good exhibits and a tank for hands on learning with staff to lend a hand. The seals are fun to watch especially if your there at feeding times -- 11:00AM & 4:00PM.

This is not New England Aquarium; no giant tanks with sharks swimming by, and no penguin exhibit, etc. The Woods Hole Aquarium is an extension of Woods Hole Oceanographic. With that said, it is primarily a research/educational facility that is open to the public, and free of charge. If you are in town, and especially with children, this charming little attraction is not to be missed. They have seal feedings at 11am & 4pm; they are 'rescued' seals who can no longer survive in the wild. Inside you will find all sorts of fish, and sea creatures in the many tanks. They also have a small touch tank that the kiddos will enjoy. Great staff, very educational. Put this on your vacation to do list.

Self guided tour. Up close & personnel with the Marine life. Great written descriptions. Staff person at the front desk was helpful in answering any questions we had. Only donations are required. This visit would keep your children busy for 3-45 minutes.
