Get hands on at touch exhibits where you can feel a reptile, stingray, shark, or crustacean.

  • We enjoyed our day at the aquarium! Our boys ages 4 and 9 loved the touch pools and the water play area. The sea lion show was great.

  • Although is was a really cold day, we thoroughly enjoyed the aquarium! Go early and beat some of the crowds and get in line at least 20 minutes ahead of time for the first sea lion show. The show...

  • Definitely go! Kids or no kids this place is enriching for everyone. The animals are very well cared for and loved. They personable, silly and interact with visitors. As well as being a beautiful place, the work they do for animal rehabilitation and environmental conservation is soul warming. There's plenty of educational bits but we mostly loved just watching the animals. Awesome place! Thank you so much for everything you do for our planet. Thank you.
  • Amazing animal encounters at Mystic Aquarium and extremely diligent with safety precautions. Beluga whales, sea lions, seals, penguins, and so much more! We enjoyed it just as much as our 2 year old! He didn't want to leave the whales because they kept saying hi to him! Great day for all ages! Highly recommend!
