Quote Visit the Aquarium

It's all within an easy walk of the [train] station too – including The Maritime Aquarium, the one relatively new building in the group and the one that enables grownups to enjoy browsing and shopping while still entertaining the children."

November 2014 Offerings at The Maritime Aquarium

We head into the holiday season with the return of two traditions here at The Maritime Aquarium: the annual "Festival of Lighthouses Contest" (opening Nov. 22) and the IMAX movie "The Polar Express" (opening Nov. 28).  The lighthouse contest will feature 24 all-new large model lighthouses built by individuals, families, art students and others.  We're as excited as anyone to see what this year's lighthouses will look like!

Also, Nov. 6 is a big day when we welcome teachers from all around the area for a free open house – called "Fish School" – and show them how to take advantage of all the educational opportunities here at The Maritime Aquarium.  Included in the event is the chance to check out our unique new research vessel, R/V Spirit of the Sound, the country's only research vessel with hybrid-electric propulsion. (She's bigger, quieter and greener than our old boat.)

There's all that and more in November. Get the press release here.
