Other ideas:
  • Sea Quest – Trumbull Mall: SeaQuest is not your typical aquarium. You will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with over 300 species and 15,000 animals from 5 continents. Immerse yourself in a world of exploration as you connect with the animals and learn about their ecosystems through various hands-on activities. There is nothing quite like seeing these animals in person, experiencing their size, proportions and behavior is a great way to learn. SeaQuest brings the majestic wonders of our planet, ranging from rainforests and deserts to exotic marine life. A visit to SeaQuest will spark the imagination and create memories the whole family will treasure. There’s something for everyone!
  • The New England Air Museum : The New England Air Museum is committed to presenting the story of aviation, the human genius that made it possible and the profound effects that it has had on the way in which we live. They achieve this by preserving and presenting historically significant aircraft and related artifacts & by engaging visitors through high-quality exhibits that help them understand aviation technology, history and the stories of the men and women who built, flew and made history with these famous machines.

  • The Sono Collection (new mall in Norwalk- not fully open) but plenty of room for the kids to run around.
