“Nice aquarium to visit”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Was a small aquarium but well worth it. Saw seals being fed and it was entertaining. Would recommend it for children as well as adults visiting Woods Hole.

“Small but informative”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

This aquarium has displays for adults and children, with a special emphasis on local native and visiting saltwater fishes and other fauna. Twice a day two rehabilitated harbor seals are fed outside near the street and are trained to do some simple activities with their trainer. Admission is free.

“great for toddlers”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Good size for a quick rainy day alternative...good size for toddler's and elementary aged kids. Enough to interest, hold their attention, and allow the family to handle, study, and interact together...
It has, of course, argueably, the most knowledgable staff in the World.

“A family favorite”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

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.
