Their interactive marine science center is home to more than 40 species from Narragansett Bay, often including rare lobsters, crabs, seahorses, sea robins, terrapins and more.
Three touch tanks allow you to get up close and personal with little skates, urchins, spider crabs, sea stars, dogfish sharks and more – all from local waters. And, with Newport’s only ocean-facing beach just outside their front door, you can continue the beach-combing experience after your visit.
