This is a great day trip with your family. From touching manna rays hands on to watching the ocean life it is great fun. It is not so big that it is overwhelming. You can finish in half day.

The Norwalk Maritime Aquarium is a great place to bring the kids, exhibits inside and out, an indoor stingray tank where you can pet them as they swim by, and watching the feeding of the sea lions is always a hit.Check out the IMAX too!

This is a really great aquarium and is a bit smaller than the Mystic Aquarium. There is also an Imax Theater attached and joint tickets can be purchased. Kids love the hands on aquarium tanks where they can get right up close to lots of little creatures. They have a nice open area where you can buy/bring lunch and just enjoy!

Watch sharks, jellies, sea turtles, and more than 1,000 other marine animals. Or enjoy a film in the IMAX movie theater. The current exhibit is Dinosaur Island, where robotic dinosaurs and an 3D sim adventure ride teach about the extinction. It seems dinosaurs are always a hit with both boys and girls when you take a friends child for the afternoon and don't know where to take them. The Maritime Aquarium also offers a really unique atmosphere for special events, like weddings, corporate parties and proms. An event at the Center was amazing - each course is in a different part of the museum. Cocktails are served with a Raw Bar in front of the Open Ocean exhibit. Dancing is in front of the seals who look like they love music. They also do less formal events such as clambakes.

We decided to go to this aquarium with our daughter during a rainy summer day. Unfortunately we should have just stayed home! The exhibits were practically nonexistant, with the highlights being the feeding of one lone sea lion and petting the sting rays. The rest of the small aquarium was practically empty, but since these two exhibits were the "highlights" they were packed and we eventually gave up on seeing anything and left. Will not be returning.

PROS:
CONS: Small, boring, waste of money

For such a small aquarium the Maritime Aquarium is a lot of fun! The displays are wonderfully arranged and they have a large variety of animals. The layout of the museum keeps your attention and allows visitors to spread out a bit. And they have a petting pool for sting rays (my favorite part!). The Maritime Aquarium is also available for private parties, my husband's company had their holiday party here last winter and the atmosphere was perfect.

It has got to be the smallest aquarium I have every been too. There is nothing much to see in this place. My family and I was done in about one hour and felt like we wasted our money. Unless your child is under the age of 2 they will find themselves very bored. There is nothing much to see and I found it a complete waste of time.

This is well worth the trip if you are in the North-East! It is the perfect size for kids and adults, LOL! They have 3 daily Sea Lion feedings, large open walkways to accomodate strollers and families. A lovely cafe and gift shop and lots of hands-on exploring type things. We took our 10 month old and she loved the shark tank and jelly fish. They have a new parking facility that is across the street from the Aquarium, and tons of new and upcoming restaurants in the area.

PROS: Kid friendly, manageable size
CONS: can get expensive
