    Spent 3 or 4 hours there with my wife. There was plenty enough to keep us entertained and educate us. This aquarium does a lot with saving injured seals in the New England area. There is a great Titanic display. Underlying that is Dr Ballard,his discoveries and teaching the future generations. Lots of sea life ,some art and a seal show my wife enjoyed. We will become members at Christmas.

    My children, mother and I visited here in July. We were very excited, but were extremely disappointed at the cost to get in. The only way we agreed to pay the high cost, was they told us we could come back as many times we wanted to during that week. We did end up spending two afternoons going through each part of the animal exhibits. We never even made it through the Titanic. Everyone was happy to take their time, taking pictures and enjoying the petting tanks and talks. I would highly recommend looking for discounts, groupons, or asking them for a free return visit. Investing the $200 for a membership would be great for local families, and they do offer a grandparents package.

    For goodness sake, get discounts somehow. I would have been put off if we had had to pay normal rates to enter. My father has a handicap national park pass and somehow that got him and a guest in here for free. Not sure how but it’s nice of them.You can see it all and not feel like you’re cutting it short in half a day. Staff was excellent, they all would answer any questions, even as part of their PA shtick.They should have ore than two power chairs for the handicapped!! Most grocery stores do, why not these folks?

    I went to Mystic Aquarium a rainy Saturday afternoon with my husband and 9 year old daughter.We had a great time. Enjoyed the touch tanks, looking at the various fish and displays. Indoor and outdoor. We took our time and ended up spending 4 hours. The Titanic display was very good. It is on the smaller side but very informative and is based on Dr Robert Ballard’s discovery of the Titanic more so than artifacts found at the wreck. Our 9 year old loved it.We would have liked to be able to give 4 1/2 star. but that option is not available. The only reason we do not give it 5 stars is due to the beluga whales. They looked fine and healthy, we are just not a big supporter of keeping larger whales in captivity.We would absolutely go again.

    The Mystic Aquarium has always been a special part of my life. I grew up in CT and my first experience was a school trip decades ago. I recently returned with my niece and nephew and was really impressed with the variety of sea animals and the live show (I didn’t think you could experience something like this outside of SeaWorld). The team works very hard and I am thankful to have it in my own backyard. Thanks for a great past and present. 😎
