Year-round aquarium and interactive marine science center lets visitors get up close to bay critters
Hold a sea star, pet a shark, marvel at jellies, and more at Save The Bay's Exploration Center and Aquarium in Newport, R.I. With dozens of exhibits featuring creatures collected from (and ultimately returned to) Narragansett Bay, this year-round center is always introducing new specimens—plus, their three touch tanks offer endless opportunities to come face-to-face with the wonders beneath the waves of local waters. Expert staff are always available to answer questions, engage visitors, and share fun facts about Rhode Island's unique marine habitats.
