The re-energized focus on Long Island Sound's story is obvious in the colorfully redesigned main hall, which has been renamed Newman's Own Hall in celebration of a $1.2 million grant from Newman's Own Foundation."

The Maritime Aquarium will be displaying our 13th annual Festival of Lighthouses. The exhibit showcases 24 large model lighthouses, built by local artists, which will be displayed from Nov. 22 through Jan. 19. Aquarium visitors can enjoy the lighthouses and then vote for their favorite.
The lighthouse with the most votes will win the $1,500 first-place prize. There are other cash prizes for second- through sixth-places. Be sure to visit us during the holidays!
This new exhibit invites you to do something you've tried to NOT do all your life: touch jellyfish!
Gently touch the tops of live moon jellies as they pulse in our new exhibit, which is open on weekends & holidays. (Daily in July & August.)
How is this possible without being stung? The stinging cells of moon jellyfish hang on tentacles below their bodies. Also, their sting is known to be relatively benign for most people.
