The boys were so excited to be here. They must have spent forever at the very first hands on exhibit. I came to the Mystic Aquarium when I was a child and my only memory of it was touching the cownose rays when you first walk in. I loved that this was still a feature!
Mystic Aquarium has a new exhibit called ‘Shark Encounters‘ where you can touch sharks!
We took advantage of this bench and decorative wall for a nice photo op.
- Moon Jellies
- Comb Jellies
- Purple Striped Jelly
- Upside-Down Jelly
- Blue Jelly
- Spotted (or Lagoon) Jelly
Jellies really are stunningly beautiful creatures. Here are some of the great shots I was able to get of the jellies!
“This amazing interactive exhibit is the only one of its kind in New England. The enclosed 1,200-square-foot aviary houses hundreds of colorful cockatiels, parakeets and rosellas, all native to Australia. With the $3 exhibit entry fee (plus aquarium admission), guests receive a millet seed stick for feeding the birds.”
This was so much fun. Even the hubby who stated there was no way he was going in had a fun time in there. When you walk in you’re handed a popsicle stick with bird seed attached.
There is a height limit to go into this XD theater. Gavin just barely made the cut. I did hold his hand onto his handle just in case. This is really cool and brings you far below the sea in a 3D adventure like you’re in the sub yourself!
Please note: Additional fee applies – $3 per person for the Deep Sea 3D Motion Ride. Must be 40 inches tall to ride. Other ride restrictions apply.
I highly recommend the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT. for admission prices you can check out their site and they even have special family and group pricing. If you don’t live near by it is worth getting a hotel and spending the night like we did. The surrounding town is so beautiful and there is so much to do!
