Maritime Aquarium offers “DROP & SHOP” DEC. 17 & 18

Give your kids a fun day hanging with sharks, seals and other marine animals – plus a screening of the holiday IMAX® movie “The Polar Express” – while giving yourself solo time for holiday shopping on Dec. 17 or 18 through “Drop & Shop” programs at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.


The Maritime Aquarium has a whole day of hands-on activities and explorations planned for ages 5 to 10 – each from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. – giving parents six solo hours for useful shopping, wrapping or other holiday prep.

Each “Drop & Shop” begins with participants attending the Aquarium’s “‘Polar Express’ Pajama Party,” which includes a hot-chocolate bar, a fun craft and a meet-and-greet with Santa – all prior to the animated feature-length holiday film at 10 a.m.

After the movie, other “Drop ’n’ Shop” activities include Aquarium tours, making a holiday keepsake gift, animal encounters and more.

Cost for “Drop & Shop” programs is $85 per child ($75 for Aquarium members). Kids should pack a lunch, a snack and an appetite for adventure.

Capacity is limited. Advance reservations are required. Call (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206, or go online to To sign up for a monthly newsletter on events and travel tips for Litchfield Hills and Fairfield County visit
