Maria Mitchell Aquarium

28 Washington Street

About Us:

Located on the shoreline of Nantucket Harbor, the Aquarium displays local Nantucket species and is an excellent place to learn about the amazing sealife around the island. Displays are always changing and range from crabs and shellfish to fish and eels.  All animals at the Aquarium are locally-collected and are released back into the wild at the end of the season. Displays can also include anything from seahorses to octopus to sharks!

Had my Boy Scout troop here during a cycling trip that ended up being partially rained out. Its small, but a great place to bring very small groups to for a great educational experience. Staff was very well educated and trained. For the price, it's hard to beat.

Very small aquarium, but loved the personal tour! They have a couple rooms and outside areas where they take the time to talk to you about all the sea life!
