Mount Desert Oceanarium

Mount Desert Oceanarium

Kids can handle live starfish, urchins, and horseshoe crabs from the oceanarium’s touch tank and get up close and personal with a few lobsters from the on-site hatchery. Outside, a boardwalk stroll through a salt marsh teaches about the complexities of saltwater ecosystems. Fill all your lobster swag needs in the gift shop.
