From visitors to students from near and far, the aquarium offers fascinating learning experiences for all ages. Learn about our educational opportunities here!
Approximately 85,000 people tour the Woods Hole Science Aquarium every year. Since 2002, more than one million visitors have been counted. Many of these are K-6 school groups from around New England that visit during the school year.
Visitor levels peak in the summer when local residents are joined by tourists and the swell of researchers and their students who conduct summer studies in the village. By the fall, the aquarium has had visitors from nearly every state and around the globe.
