Animals Up-Close

Encounters with the animals that call Mystic Aquarium home

Animals Up-Close: Learn More

During a seal painting session, you and one of our resident harbor seals will create a one-of-a-kind painting that will be yours forever!

Just like humans, animals benefit from a variety of stimuli. Painting with our animals is just one way Mystic Aquarium ensures an enriching and stimulating environment, and it is a great opportunity for you to learn more about our local seal species, their habitat, and ways you can help with the conservation of marine mammals.
