Mystic Aquarium is one of our favorite field trips! We love to get there early to see the beluga whales being fed. Also make sure to view them from the windows underneath the tank as the belugas will often come to window and play with kids - waving their fins and sticking out their tongues!

There is a good number of interactive exhibits and activities to get the kids involved. We also enjoyed the aviary, the sea lion show, and watching the penguins get fed.

There are a few touch tanks - a tidal pool, a nurse shark tank, and rays. Also, great jellyfish exhibits!
