|Mystic Aquarium celebrates its first 40 years|
Sea Research Foundation’s Mystic Aquarium is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year with special events and promotions. The aquarium opened on Oct. 6, 1973, to showcase a new artificial seawater product, Instant Ocean. Today, it is the most visited cultural institution in Connecticut and a leader in marine education, research and exploration.
Throughout its 40-year history, Mystic Aquarium has been celebrated for its award-winning animal care team, hands-on marine animal encounters, world-class education programs, and animal conservation and scientific research endeavors that stretch from Mystic to the Cape of South Africa to the High Arctic.
