It's all within an easy walk of the [train] station too – including The Maritime Aquarium, the one relatively new building in the group and the one that enables grownups to enjoy browsing and shopping while still entertaining the children."

December 2014 Offerings at The Maritime Aquarium

December brings the long-awaited first public outings aboard The Maritime Aquarium's cool new research vessel, the R/V Spirit of the Sound. The $2.7 million catamaran is bigger, quieter and greener than the Aquarium's previous research vessel.  Be a part of this new era of exploring Long Island Sound by coming out with us as we use the Spirit of the Sound for the Aquarium's annual season of Seal-Spotting Cruises.

But oh there's lots more than that in December, including special holiday music on weekends, Santa diving among our sharks, our 13th annual "Festival of Lighthouses Contest," the animated holiday classic "The Polar Express" playing in our IMAX Theater, and more.  Get the press release here.
