The Maritime Aquarium is a not-for- profit organization whose mission is to educate visitors about – and to create stewards for – Long Island Sound. It accomplishes this by allowing visitors to get close to more
than 250 species native to the Sound and its watershed, including sharks, seals, sea turtles, river otters, jellyfish and other animals. One of the top places for family fun in Connecticut, the Aquarium also features
hands-on educational programs and displays, public study cruises out onto the Sound, and Connecticut’s largest IMAX movie theater, with a screen that's six stories high. TripAdvisor.com reviewers rate The
Maritime Aquarium as one of the Top 25 aquariums in the U.S. and No. 1 in New England, while Yankee Magazine recently named The Maritime Aquarium as the Best Family Attraction in New England.
