Local Area Attractions
Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration
The Mystic Aquarium is "where deep sea exploration comes to life." Visit seals, whales, sharks and even piranhas; if you long for a hands-on experience, visit the Ray Touch Pool. Above ground, one exhibit you won't want to miss is the "Hidden Amazon."
Project Oceanology is a hands-on education in marine science at a beautiful waterfront location. Go on a lighthouse expedition, an oceanographic research cruise or a seal watch! You’ll have so much fun, you’ll forget you’re learning. Call 860-445-9007 for schedules and reservations. Admission is charged. This attraction is located at the University of Connecticut Avery Point Campus in Groton, ten miles southwest of North Stonington.
