Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium reviews
My kids enjoyed feeding the fish and watching them jump on top of another for the food. We love the tiny aquarium and live exhibit with stream exhibit, baby turtles, snapping turtle, frogs and... more »
Really an enjoyable place to take kids. There is a church in the back with a gorgeous pond right there, and some hiking trails. One even leads way up the hill to a historic cemetery! That was a really cool surprise for the kids. Staff was great. Will definitely come back!
We have been here before and this is our second time here. We came for the advertising of fishing! Well very disappointed as we drove 30 minutes to be told only 12 poles are allowed and you can wait and see if someone finishes before the session end. No such luck. Don't waste a drive for it when they advertise. Better chance to go get your own pole and go elsewhere!
