The re-energized focus on Long Island Sound's story is obvious in the colorfully redesigned main hall, which has been renamed Newman's Own Hall in celebration of a $1.2 million grant from Newman's Own Foundation."

After ticketing, your orientation to Long Island Sound begins as you stroll down the Rizvi Family Promenade. Panels describe some of the estuary's special aspects and get you thinking of the role you too play in the health of this important body of water.
Start your Maritime Aquarium journey in Newman’s Own Hall, our central hub and also where you'll find our harbor seals in their unique/indoor outdoor exhibit.
Harbor seals are the most common seal in New England waters. They spend most of the year in the Gulf of Maine but many swim down to winter in Long Island Sound. Seal show times at the Aquarium are 11:45 a.m. and 1:45 & 3:45 p.m. daily. These public sessions are a great opportunity for visitors to ask questions of the animal-husbandry staff.
Also in Newman's Own Hall, an interactive panel lets you explore the geographic history of Long Island Sound and also your place (and responsibility) within the Sound's watershed.
