Harness Racing Museum New York 1.jpg
240 Main Street, Goshen, NY, United States 46.9 mi

This unique and educational museum offers something you are not likely to find elsewhere: the history of Harness Racing. A popular event these days, harness racing has been hailed as the original Great American Pastime.

Housed in a beautifully restored gentleman’s stable, the Museum features exhibits of antique sulkies and sleighs, trophies, lifelike statuary, paintings, Currier & Ives prints, and more. And a realistic 3-D Harness Racing Simulator gets the blood flowing!

Follow the trail of Hambletonian, one of the most famous horses in harness racing. This lucky guy made his name not by racing — he was raced only once — but by siring over 1,300 foals. He was a champion, and Hambletonian blood dominated the breed of trotting and pacing horses and continues to do so today. The Hambletonian Stake, first raced in 1926 at the New York State Fair, has remained one of the sport’s premiere events and today is run at the Meadowlands for a purse exceeding one million dollars.

Individuals and families will enjoy this museum, as as well as the special events that take place here throughout the year. Visitors to the Museum will also want to visit neighboring Historic Track, the world’s oldest track, where horses and their trainers can be seen working out. Special races are held here, and those interested should call for details.

Mineralogy & Mining Education

The Sterling Hill Mining Museum is dedicated to educating teachers and their students about natural resource issues, with particular reference to the State of New Jersey.

Our education programs explore such topics as the geology and mineralogy of New Jersey, our nonrenewable resources (metals, nonmetals, and fuels), how those resources have been extracted and used over time, and, in a global sense, how our present lives are shaped by the materials available to us. We work within the broad fields of the STEM core subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), which we often explore not only in their current but also historical contexts.

All of our educational offerings are aligned with New Jersey core curriculum standards and are designed to be implemented by teachers within the context of their existing school curriculum.

Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk Connecticut.jpg
10 North Water Street, Norwalk, CT, United States 82.12 mi

Opened in July 1988, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to have a good time while learning about the vital natural resource just off our shore: Long Island Sound. Set in a refurbished 1860s factory at the mouth of the Norwalk River, the Aquarium building and its location reflect the region’s industrial past and human uses of Long Island Sound for recreation and commerce.

Visitors explore at their own pace, observing 34 exhibits featuring more than 1,200 marine animals of 259 species. The Long Island Sound journey begins along a freshwater river and the shallow waters of the salt marsh, then moves into deeper and deeper habitats out to the open ocean. These close encounters with animals, enhanced by friendly volunteer interpreters and informative display panels, educate visitors about the aquatic life of Long Island Sound and its watershed.

The sharks, seals, river otters, sea turtles and other animals, carefully tended in re-created natural settings, serve as ambassadors both for their species and the Sound’s natural environment. These intimate encounters are the heart of the learning experience and provide visitors – children especially – with a basis for understanding their role in the web of life.

[showhide type="links" more_text="Family Trips & Programs" less_text="Hide Programs"]

Asides from the normal visit at the Aquarium and checking out the IMAX theater at Norwalk, the Maritime Aquarium offers many great programs suitable for children and families. Take a look below at all the fun and interesting things that the aquarium has to offer.

Study Cruises onto Long Island Sound

Cruise out with us aboard the research vessel Oceanic for thrilling explorations of the Sound’s marine life: with a variety of animals brought up right onto the boat (April-October) or to look for some of the seals & waterfowl that winter in the Sound (December-April).  Details …

Creature Encounter (11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturdays & Sundays)

Meet one of our beautiful Diamondback Terrapins and learn what you can do to help protect Long Island Sound. Their lovely blue skin offers a hue rarely found in the animal world.

FREE with Aquarium admission.

Animal Embassy Programs (11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on selected days)

Stamford-based Animal Embassy will present some of their live “animal ambassadors” in guided hands-on introductions. Children (and adults!) will be able to touch and even hold select animals while learning about their appearances, behaviors, adaptations and habitats, as well as the conservation issues they face. FREE with Aquarium admission. • Sometime in October

<

p style=”text-align: center;”>Shark Dives (At 1:45 p.m. on Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays
)

Would you jump into a tank of water filled with 6- and 7-foot sharks? Actually, it can be done – bloodlessly – because sharks aren’t really the aggressive man-eaters of popular myth. Come see for yourself when The Maritime Aquarium’s dive team spends some quality time among the sand tiger sharks, lemon shark and other creatures of the 110,000-gallon “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit. Thanks to a cool communication link, you can even talk with the divers while they’re in the exhibit with the sharks! They’ll tell you that sharks should be respected … but not feared. (You also can talk to the divers before they go in the water between 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on “dive days.”) FREE with Aquarium admission.

“Behind-the-Scenes Tours” (On the third Saturday of every month, at 8:15 a.m.)

Operating the aquarium is an complicated production that must satisfy more than 1,000 animals with varying requirements for food, water temperatures and salinities, and more. See how it’s all done when you visit our jellyfish “nursery” and the “fish kitchen,” where meals for our residents are prepared. We’ll go above the “Ocean Beyond the Sound” exhibit, where you can look down on the sharks in their 110,000-gallon tank … and even toss in some fish for them to eat! And feel the tickle as you hand-feed the cow-nosed rays!

Participants must be 10 years and older. Anyone under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult. “Behind-the-Scenes Tours” cost $32.50 for non-members ($22.50 for Aquarium members) and include Aquarium admission at 10 a.m. There is a maximum of 25 people per tour. Advance reservations strongly recommended. Walk-up sales are accepted.

For reservations, Purchase tickets online (click on the date you wish to come) or call The Maritime Aquarium at (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206. Space is limited.

Aquarium Cruises

The Maritime Aquarium offers two study cruise programs onto Long Island Sound. These are available to the public and also to schools/summer camps as charters.

Marine Life Study Cruise:

Offered from May 5 through October

Public schedule: 1 p.m. Saturdays May 5-June 30 and then at 1 p.m. daily in July & August. Also on Saturdays in September & October.

Study marine biodiversity from the water’s surface down to the bottom for a first-hand understanding of Long Island Sound’s interdependent marine life. Students utilize such sampling techniques as a plankton tow, biodredge, mud grab and otter trawl that may bring up fish, crabs, lobsters, sea stars and more. A video microscope and touch tank onboard enhance observations. Passengers must be over 42″ tall. Capacity: 29. Cost: $20.50 per person. ($18.50 for Aquarium members)

Bronx Zoo New York.jpg
2300 Southern Boulevard, Bronx, NY, United States 88.09 mi

From its earliest days, the Wildlife Conservation Society has been a leader in animal well being. The flagship Bronx Zoo established its first veterinary department in 1901. At the time, the department consisted only of a pathologist and a veterinarian. Today, the Wildlife Health Sciences division includes departments of clinical care, pathology, nutrition, and field veterinary programs. The Wildlife Health Center, located on Bronx Zoo grounds, serves more than 15,000 animals from the four WCS zoos in New York.

The state-of-the-art Aquatic Animal Health Center at the New York Aquarium opened in 2008 to meet the unique challenges of caring for its collection of marine animals. The high-tech hospital includes a laboratory and an operating room, several pools for patients with flippers, X-ray machines, and a kitchen for preparing meals for residents of all sizes, from a tiny seahorse to a 3,000-pound walrus.

Dinosaur State Park.jpg
400 West Street, Rocky Hill, CT, United States 90.21 mi

Welcome to Dinosaur State Park

The Connecticut Valley has a long history of fossil track discoveries. Outstanding specimens uncovered in 19th century brownstone quarries found their way into museums throughout the world. A new chapter in the history of such discoveries was written in 1966 when hundreds of tracks were exposed in Rocky Hill. This remarkable site became Dinosaur State Park.

Outdoor activities include walking trails that lead past 25 life-size concrete and steel dinosaurs. See the creatures that roamed the state up to 230 years ago on the Connecticut Trail; try out Monty’s Splashpad, a state of the art interactive water play. Inside, kids can continue their discoveries in the Bone Zone, where they can dig for faux fossils, dig for crystals, pan for gold and do not leave without shopping in the 10,000 square foot retail area.
