The Maritime Aquarium
More than half a million people visit The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk (CT) each year for a fun and educational adventure into the underwater world of Long Island Sound. The Maritime Aquarium.
The nationally recognized aquarium puts you nose-to-nose with sharks, inches away from fascinating seals, in touch with the seemingly boundless energy of a river otter, up close to wrinkly, huge sea turtles, a stinging tentacle away from jellies and helps you make a real connection with 125 other species from Long Island Sound and its watershed. You will also enjoy maritime exhibits, educational programs, a boat shop and Connecticut's only IMAX movie theater with a screen that's six stories tall! Admission is not required to enter the expanded Gift Shop or full-service cafeteria. The Maritime Aquarium is handicap accessible.
Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily (10 a.m. - 6 p.m. in July and August); closed Thanksgiving and Christmas Day
