Weird & Wonderful - Opening May 27Something weird and wonderful will happen at Mystic Aquarium this Memorial Day Weekend. 

Beginning Friday, May 26, 2017, guests will be invited take a walk on the weird side of our watery world with Weird & Wonderful.  This exciting new exhibit showcases some of nature’s most bizarre and fascinating creatures.

Spanning more than 1,000 square feet and featuring several new exhibits and animals, guests will marvel at the unique features and adaptations of a diversity of aquatic animals.


Unfathomably freaky and outlandishly odd, Weird & Wonderful ‘s signature species include the larger-than-life giant Japanese spider crabs, mudskippers, giant Pacific octopus, fish eating anemone, large-nosed freshwater wonders like the paddlefish, and experts in camouflage like the warty frogfish and so much more. 

Additional exhibits include coral reefs and bio-fluorescents.

Bright, bold imagery and hands-on interactives enhance the guest experience. 

Keeping conservation at the forefront, through this exhibit Mystic Aquarium seeks to educate guests in interesting and engaging ways to the threats facing these various species and the actions that can be taken to protect them and preserve their aquatic homes.

Weird and Wonderful is the second brand-new exhibit in as many years!
