This small oceanarium is very well done. When you finish you will know more about lobsters than you can imagine! They show you the whole process of "growing" lobsters, a bit about their history, and some of the popular culture surrounding them. While kids 12 and under will enjoy it most, older kids will be okay with it as well.

The walk through the salt marsh is short, but pleasent.

An interesting museum to expand our knowledge. We stopped in while on vacation, and for us landlocked Midwesterners, it was a great experience. All of our kids enjoyed it tremendously (as did we adults).
