“come see your favorite water animal!”
The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk has harbor seals, river otters, sharks, jellyfish, loggerhead turtles, and hundreds of other animals living in re-creations of their natural Long Island Sound habitats. There are two touch tanks that feature smooth stingrays, nurse sharks, crabs, sea stars and other coastal creatures.The aquarium also has an IMAX Theater with a screen six-stories tall and the equivalent of eight-stories wide.
Great little aquarium, complete with an IMAX Theater. Each summer they will bring in something interesting (this summer was the lorikeets), and in the past they have had an albino alligator! Due to it's location on the Long Island Sound they have a great layout showing the various types of sea life found in the area along with what is more prevalent based on the time of year.
There is also a newer area that includes prairie dogs and other African life. This is just outside the always enjoyable touch tank, letting you feel the slick skins of rays and sharks.
Finally, your trip isn't complete without seeing one of the scheduled feedings of the seals! Easy to spot once you get in, make sure you get a seat early to watch the show, and see the individual personality of each of the seals!
