This was a very fun experience. I imagine it works be enjoyable for children also. There's a touch tank. The place is pretty small and focuses on aquatic life found in the coast of Maine. There was a very informative presentation on lobster fishing.
There is a small room with all the tanks and touch tanks. There is a nice area to walk around near the shore with a couple picnic tables to eat lunch. There are some provided activities such as the fishing poles to try and catch some fish off the fishing dock. You could expect to spend about an hour seeing everything. The biggest issue was the very limited parking.
