Home to the Rare Blue Lobster
Founded in 1973 to serve as a living laboratory and major public exhibit, Mystic Aquarium offers visitors the opportunity to “sea” fish and invertebrates from around the world! Step beyond the entrance gates and you’ll encounter New England’s only Beluga whales, sea lions, seals and a bunch of other species like the penguins, sharks and even Jelly fish!
Open daily, Mystic Aquarium offers a number of indoor and outdoor exhibits and a wonderful, interactive Discovery Lab – where you can check out the rare blue lobster! Accordingly to those in the know – only one out of two million lobsters is blue.
Why we love it: Here, it’s fun to explore. And at the Penguins Cafe – you can grab a burger, fries and sustainably sourced seafood!
