One of the best aquariums we have ever been to! This place has it all interactions with stingrays to sea lion shows to giant spider crabs that look like aliens! I would make sure you put this at the top of your list for things...More

Such a good time. The Dinosaur exhibit, sea loin show, penguins, and beluga whales were awesome. Great place to spend the day with the family.

My fiancé and I heard water in our granddaughter drive from Torrington to go to this wonderful aquarium. We’ve had nothing but great times and we will continue to go back.

Spent the day. The kids loved it. The staff were attentive to the kids answering their questions and explaining the different types of fish and animals and what makes them special. A bit pricey for the average family of four for admission, lunch and souvenirs.

The main purpose for our visit was because my children wanted to see the beluga whales. We arrived at the viewing area as they were being fed, and my children loved it. The whales are in an outdoor exhibit, and you can follow the path...More

Agree, it is a very large lot, and in this season for sure parking should not be an issue.
