We had such a great time visiting. The beluga whales are a huge attraction. The sea lions are awesome as well as the shark tanks and the seals / stingrays. Penguins are cute and close. It was a nice walk and easy to manage and I was doing it with a 2 year old. I thought it was great.
Best aquarium in New England! Took a trip from NH on a recommendation from friends and so glad we did. We loved the chance to be both inside and outside for exhibits. The beluga whales are a big attraction. I could watch then all day. My favorite part was the seal show. You can get up close with these guys and the trainers were top notch when working with the animals.
