  • Two primary local roads leading to the Aquarium are currently within construction zones. We recommend using the GPS on your car or phone to guide you … by plugging in the destination of 24 Marshall Street in Norwalk, Connecticut.   24 Marshall Street is NOT our actual address, but it’s the best address to use with your G.P.S. for avoiding the construction.
