"I found Mount Desert Oceanarium the best teaching aquarium I've ever seen, including the great public aquariums up and down the East and West coasts as well as the Pacific rim." —W.H.A., Noted Audubon Field Guide and National Geographic author

"The Oceanarium is certainly a leader in the effort to involve its visitors in a personal and hands-on experience."— John R. Dickel, Helene R. Dickel, professors of astronomy, University of Illinois

"...a sheer delight! We adults enjoyed the Oceanarium just as much as the children. We found the staff to be friendly, knowledgeable and eager to tell us everything we wanted to know."—Max Cherrington, White Plains, N.Y.

"...a great place for kids, with its touch tanks and other hands-on exhibits, including phones for listening in to the songs of whales."—Eleanor Berman, author of Away for the Weekend: 52 Great Getaways in the Six New England States for Every Season of the Year
