  • Absolutely amazing spot to visit if you’re in the area or on the way to Martha’s Vineyard. Donations recommended but I believe it’s free. The scientific impact of this area is fantastic and I recommend supporting this aquarium even if you have no idea what oceanic conservation is or how to get involved. Parking in the area is somewhat tough to figure out if you’re new, so watch out for one way streets.
  • Free small aquarium(donations welcome), good displays and text to identify what we're seeing. Maybe 8-12 larger displays (4' wide, maybe), 3 or 4 smaller aquariums (3' wide) and one long display with larger fish (maybe 20-30' wide). All critters are from the US local and near Atlantic coast with some open-ocean dwellers. The visitor is then able to go up stairs to view all the tanks from the top and visit the touching tank. If you're using a wheel chair - I think the displays are easily viewed and the floor area wide and level, but you may have to loop around the building to get to the access ramp to the touch tank, which is in the same area as the tops of the display tanks.
