The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk helps visitors appreciate Long Island Sound and other marine habitats by making connections with sharks, seals, otters, sea turtles and other animals. Year-round study cruises bring visitors right into the Sound to experience its animals in their own environment. Changing exhibits, hands-on touch tanks and an IMAX theater with its six-story-tall screen ensure every experience is enjoyable and educational.
