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."

Exhibits & Animals



Intertidal Touch Tank

touch-tank-photoOften, the best learning experience occurs by touch. At our Intertidal Touch Tank, we offer “hands-on” learning with guided introductions to a variety of animals commonly found on the Long Island Sound shoreline.

You’ll feel the tickly feet of sea stars, the smooth hard surface of horseshoe crabs, the protective single foot of the whelk and lots more.

It’s all safely and capably presented by members of the Aquarium’s trained volunteer staff. (Look for them in their green shirts at other key locations in the Aquarium!)



Mission: The Maritime Aquarium inspires people of all ages to appreciate and protect the Long Island Sound ecosystem
and the global environment through
living exhibits, marine science, and environmental education.
