Train rides and up-close ocean life make for a perfect family adventure! All are invited to hop aboard the train with fellow grad students and families at Union Station and explore the Maritime Aquarium in nearby Norwalk! Be amazed by hands-on maritime exploration and massive tanks full of sharks, sea turtles and seals!
We will gather at Union Station at 11:10am to take the Metro North train from New Haven (11:25am) to South Norwalk (arriving 12:13pm). We will provide you with a bottle of water and light children’s snacks for the train ride but please also bring your own additional food and children’s meals or purchase something at the station. After an enjoyable 50-minute train ride, we will have a 10-minute walk to the Aquarium.
To catch the return train at 4:36pm, we will leave the aquarium at 4:10pm and be back at New Haven at 5:30pm.
