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 2015 Offerings at The Maritime Aquarium

Turning the calendar to November means the holidays are approaching. And that means this month The Maritime Aquarium will be opening its 14th annual "Festival of Lighthouses Contest," featuring 23 large homemade model lighthouses all competing for the $1,500 top prize.  

We're also having a coat drive Nov. 7 & 8 (offering discounts to visitors who participate), and spending the weekend of Nov. 14 & 15 focusing on invasive species – particularly a species of fish called lionfish that have the nickname "turkey fish." (Seemed appropriate right before Thanksgiving!) 

And, at the end of November, we bring "The Polar Express" back to our IMAX movie lineup for the holiday season. 

All that, and more!  Get the press release here.
