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." – The New York Times
Try not to call these cool shoreline creatures "starfish." Sea stars aren't fish, so the proper name is "sea star." (Similarly, call them jellies, not jellyfish.)
Allow two to four or more hours for your visit, depending upon whether you include an IMAX movie in your visit, how much of the intrepretive information you read for each exhibit, whether you take time to enjoy lunch and other considerations.
The Maritime Aquarium inspires people of all ages to appreciate Long Island Sound and protect it for future generations. A vibrant and entertaining learning environment, it achieves this goal through living exhibits, marine science, and environmental education.
