All reviews fish touch tank sea life behind the scenes harbor seals rainy day great for kids donations accepted second floor free admission blue lobster great place to visit small place aquatic animals quick stop fun to watch off season

We toured this free aquarium... donations requested but not required Saw east coast sea life that we had never seen, being “west coasters” all our lives. Well worth it, especially for families with young children. A few “touch” tanks.

Not really an "aquarium" as one would think of an aquarium but a great place for children. The best part isn't the simple fish tanks but going upstairs and interacting with the staff who are helpful with all of the questions. A great place
Great take with young children. The seal pond in front is a lot of fun for the kids. Parking in Woods Hole is challenging. There are several good restaurants near buy and they are an easy walk from the aquarium.

My only complaint would be that it would be nice to have...More

Great place for the young folks! Some exhibits are hands on, but this is not the New England Aquarium :-) An hour would do it. Walk around the corner to the docks and check out the working boats too, this should keep them busy for a while longer. Have fun in Falmouth!
