The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk (formerly Maritime Center) is an aquarium located in the South Norwalk (or "SoNo") section of Norwalk, Connecticut. The aquarium features harbor seals, river otters, sharks, jellyfish, loggerhead turtles, and hundreds of other animals living in re-creations of their natural Long Island Sound habitats. Three touch tanks feature stingrays, nurse sharks, crabs, sea stars, moon jellies and other coastal creatures. The aquarium also has an IMAX Theater with a screen six stories tall and the equivalent of eight stories wide. It features a 10,000-watt, digital, proprietary, surround-sound system. In addition to its exhibits, The Maritime Aquarium offers educational programs, year-round cruises on its 64-foot research vessel R/V Spirit of the Sound, special events and camps. Wikipedia
