Mystic Aquarium




Seas the Day! Where conservation meets commitment, education meets inspiration, research meets passion.

Explore the wonders of our ocean planet and the marine life that inhabits it at Mystic Aquarium. Mystic Aquarium is counted among the nation’s leading aquariums, offering exemplary care to a variety of species while also serving as the northeast’s premier marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation center. Home to over 300 species of animals, Mystic Aquarium is the only place in New England where the public can see beluga whales and the only place in the continental United States where people can see Steller sea lions and spotted seals. Mystic Aquarium is also one of only three institutions in the United States that is home to Northern fur seals.

The outdoor exhibits will take you on a journey through the Pacific Northwest and Arctic Coast, and give you an opportunity to touch cownose rays. Inside the Main Gallery, immerse yourself in the aquatic world with habitats such as the Hidden Amazon, Caribbean Reef, and Weird and Wonderful.

Connect with conservation through the California Sea Lion Show in the Foxwoods Marine Theater and then travel back in time in Dino Seas, an immersive exhibit featuring hands-on interactive experiences, animatronic undersea creatures and dinosaurs, two thrilling 4-D movies, a two-story indoor playscape, and live amphibians and reptiles.

Mystic Aquarium also hosts special events, after-hour functions, and conservation opportunities. Mystic Aquarium is KultureCity Sensory Inclusive™, accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums, and certified by the Humane Association. Mystic Aquarium is the place to explore, learn, and be continuously inspired by the vibrant marine life in our ocean planet.
