What is there to do?

One way to explore the great Atlantic Ocean of ours, is to train for months to become amazing at diving, then plunge into the deep unknown and brave the cold.  OR you can just head to Mystic Aquarium, and have an amazing time whilst staying dry! 

This popular aquarium has a number of beautiful, weird and wonderful species from our deepest ocean for you to explore, and learn about.

With exhibits and live shows, kids will have a great time learning something new about our ocean!

The exhibits over a whole range of topics, each just as fascinating as the last. For those art lovers, the unique Washed Ashore shows some pretty incredible sculptures that are made out of items that actually had washed ashore on the Pacific Coast. Shaped into animals, these pieces of art are a great way for kids to really learn what it means to keep our oceans clean. 

Want to get eye to eye with a Beluga whale? Now is your chance! The Arctic Coast exhibit is studded with glacial streams and jagged rocks, and even bubbling caves where the whales feel like they are actually in their natural home. 

With 4D theaters, fish galleries, jellyfish and photography exhibits, you certainly will be needing the full day!

Mystic Aquarium also have some pretty fun shows where the kids can see Sea Lions interacting with the trainers. There are even some historically amazing exhibits about the discovery of the RMS Titanic. Iceberg dead ahead!

Have the wonders of the ocean right at your fingertips at Mystic Aquarium!
