Rave Reviews

My 1 year olds LOVE this place! There’s plenty of room for them to wander, but it’s not so large that one adult can’t watch two children. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They are adding new exhibits currently. There is a baby room, just for kids under 3. Plenty of things to keep older kids happy, too. Come down to Niantic for the day! While you’re here, check out our beaches and lovely Main Street area. You won’t be disappointed.
