Blue Crab Fun Fact

Blue crabs are good swimmers. Their specially adapted pair of back legs are "swimmerets" that help move them effectively through the water.



Jiggle A JellyJiggle a Jelly at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk! The touch-a-jellyfish exhibit is open on weekends and holidays; daily in July & August. Visit our website for more details: touch-a-jellyfish exhibit 

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 the exhibit.  One of our trained volunteers will guide you.

How is this possible without being stung? The stinging cells of moon jellyfish are known to be relatively benign for most people.



Mission: The Maritime Aquarium inspires people of all ages to appreciate and protect the Long Island Sound ecosystem
and the global environment through
