Love it!! They don't have alot but they are very good at educating and this place is awesome for little kids. Plus it's free but they do ask for donations.

Small aquarium that has lots of interesting exhibits and plenty of fish to look at. Staff members were great with small kids showing them how to draw fish and crabs. And it's free. Worth a stop.

An open-air aquarium! You can breathe the ocean air as you look at the wonderful ocean animals on the inside of the building. A great feel to a wonderful place!

This is a local aquarium with things for the kiddos to do. The tanks are small and there are some hands on (no live sea life) activities such as coloring. Good way to spend an hour or so.

This is so nice, right on the water. Great volunteers. Open 1-4. They even let fido come right in! Very small aquarium but had some great eels and puffers. Kids will enjoy, plus it's free! Within walking distance to Maritime museum, Rockport beach and the Art center (also free).

Admission is free though... More
