I agree with the rest of the reviews that it was a little pricey for such a short time spent in the aquarium, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Good outdoor exhibits, as well as interesting indoor exhibits. They have amazing Beluga whales and sea lions and penguins and whatnots. If you're in CT, you should visit.

Next time you go there or even the first time you go there look around . There are Kids and adults all over. I have never even seen a candy wrapper on the ground! Its so spotless its disturbing. The animals look healthy and the water always looks clean. The staff seems to love their jobs and they do not limit the aquarium to just marine animals. They also have bats and spiders reptiles and take a picture with a parrot. or play with a Beluga Whale or penguin for a expensive price but what a gift! I think this place is great If you get a membership and go 2x you already paid it off. We love to go and eat at go fish. Its a great time for friends and family

PROS: clean, fun, constant changes
CONS: none they are excellent

I wasn't completely thrilled with this aquarium. It was pretty costly for what you got. When we went it cost about $18 per adult. I think we were in the aquarium for no more than 45 minutes. There just wasnt much to see! I would have to say the best part is the sea lions outsidethey were pretty entertaining and we were watching them for a good 15 minutes! If I was back in the Mystic area again I dont think I would take another trip to this aquarium.

For a small town, this is an ok aquarium. It does't compare to the big city aquariums like Boston, but it does all right. It takes no more than a couple of hours to get through if you don't make any of the shows. The outdoor exibits are fun. The sea lions are always entertaining. It is expensive though. Its a nice treat every couple of years, but after that its not worth it. This gets to be a madhouse with school groups and sunny weekends in the summer. Go as soon as they open or late in the day.

PROS: Interesting exhibits
CONS: Price!

Very expensive. Not much to see. Love the penguins.
Is handicapped accessible for those in wheelchairs, but no place to sit and rest if you walk with a cane.

If you have young children, and they have the chance to go as a group with their school, sign up to be a chaperone... It will be much less expensive then if you go as a family.

This aquarium is nice, but I thought it was highly priced for what you get to see. A few of the tanks were empty and others contained only one lone fish in a huge tank. The center tank is the highlight with many brightly colored fish and coral. This aquarium used to have more interactive programs included with the admission, but now everything seems to have been stopped or there is an additional charge. Don't think I will be returning.

PROS:
CONS: Overpriced, small

This aquarium was a complete waste of money and it was cheap to get in either. Of all the aquarium's i have visited I would have to put this one down as the worst yet. There wasn't much to see other then the baluga whale. Even the animals in the tanks looked bored. It probably didn't even take us 1 hour before we were finished. The only thing that looked interesting was the program they have were you could go in an touch the dolphins, but its cost alot of money.. We are talking hundreds.

This aquarium is beautiful especially after the massive renovations they recently made. There are both indoor and outdoor exhibits for you to enjoy. The dolphin show is a lot of fun too. The staff is always on hand to answer questions about the animals. However I do find it extrmemely expensive. It would have to be a special occasion for me to take the whole family.

PROS: Beautiful exhibits
CONS: pricey

I think the Mystic aquarium is quite pricey. The place is small and there really isn't much too see. I use to go just to watch the dolphin shows when they had them, but since there gone, i find the place very boring. I wouldn't go unless you tend to bring a very young child, maybe then it would at least be exciting for someone. NOT recommended.

We love coming to this aquararium when we are in town. They have some nice sea lion shows that our 2 year old loved. The fish tanks are great and so enjoyable. There is plent to see inside and outside. It's a great place to go on a nice day b/c there is a lot of stuff outside.

Very high priced, but I had a friend bring me in, so I wasn't unhappy with the cost to get in. The Mystic Aquarium has been changing alot in the last 5 or so years, but not much has changed for the little ones. There are tanks of fish and the usual whales behind glass, but nothing too extraordinary.

Mystic Aquarium has a great program in which participants are given the opportunity to be close-up with an African penguin. The program lasts about an hour and you spend at least half of that time with an African penguin. The cost is $62.00 per person and its probbaly best to make a reservation ahead of time.

This has to be the worst aquarium I have ever been to. I must of spend less then 2 hours in side. Now the reason I spent 2 hours was because this aquarium is huge. It is probably one of the biggest ones I've been too. Now why is it the worst?? Because the aquarium is full of nothing to see! I think they have more plants and trees then actual aquatic life. Some of the exhibits is just a dark room playing a video. If i wanted to watch a video I could of just went to blockbuster. Not pay $16 for admission ticket per person.

To be fair, It was not all bad. They have a really nice and entertaining Lion of The Sea Show. It was really fun, but it was about a 20 minute show.
