The Exploration Center and Aquarium
Our interactive marine science center is home to more than 40 species from Narragansett Bay, as well as three touch tanks and dozens of exhibits to get you up close and personal with little skates, dogfish sharks, urchins, crabs and lobsters, seahorses, turtles, and so much more.
Every month features a new theme, with scavenger hunts, story hour, crafts, and science experiments that introduce our guests to something new or unexpected about Narragansett Bay. And, with Newport’s only ocean-facing beach just outside our front door, you can continue the beachcombing experience after your visit!
The Exploration Center and Aquarium will extend its days and hours during February vacation and Newport Winter Festival, opening February 15-24, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and offering $1 admission and event discounts to festival bracelet holders.
Feeding Frenzy at the Aquarium
On the third Thursday of every month, join us for a very special opportunity to assist in feeding some of our favorite critters from Narragansett Bay! From 5-6 p.m., you can see our little skates chow down, watch our stargazer electrify his prey and much more!
