Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration is so much more than an aquarium. It's not just a place to visit ocean life, it's a unique experience in living marine creatures and the latest discoveries of our underwater world.

In addition to a beautiful aquarium setting supported by a team of highly dedicated marine animal research experts, we have assembled some of the finest talent in oceanographic and deep-sea archeological research. In fact, we're the only aquarium in the world with exhibits based on work done by Robert Ballard and his deep-ocean exploration team... fascinating discoveries you will see almost as soon as they are uncovered.

Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration are divisions of Sea Research Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit institution. The Foundation's mission is to inspire people everywhere to care about and protect our oceans by exploring and sharing their biological, ecological and cultural treasures.

As a nonprofit organization, donations and revenue from admissions go to the development and execution of educational programs, marine research, marine animal rescue and deep-sea expeditions.
