Explore the depths of our ocean planet like never before as you travel through Mystic Aquarium’s indoor and outdoor exhibits. Visit with thousands of creatures from New England’s only beluga whales to the endangered African penguin, rescued seals to colorful fish and more. Experience the sensation of a shark as it swims below your fingertips, the delight as a ray grabs food right from your hand, and the thrill of touching an exotic reptile. And, take a walk on the wild side of nature in Weird & Wonderful where you'll encounter outlandishly odd sea creatures.

Immerse your senses through fun flicks in our 4-D Theater where 3-D imagery meets special effects and expand your mind with exclusive films in our National Geographic Theater. Our sea lions will take your breath away when you see exciting behaviors demonstrated in the Foxwoods Marine Theater.

Step in to Exploration: Wild! and discover the globe from the jungles of the Amazon forest to the shining Northern lights of the Arctic. Jump in a JEEP, pass by a towering life-sized polar bear then climb in a steel shark cage, if you dare. Go eye-to-eye with six foot American alligators. Then hop into the world of frogs! where you can pop into the center of various habitats and learn about this diverse species.

Enhance your visit during one of our encounter programs. As New England’s hands-on aquarium, you can paint with a beluga whale, spend time with African penguins or even see what it’s like to be an Aquarium trainer for the day. Through these up-close and interactive programs you will learn about our animals and understand how our team of veterinarians and scientists are making a difference.
