Where is WHOI's aquarium?

The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) maintains a number of facilities in the village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts, but the aquarium many people associate with Woods Hole is actually operated by a separate, federal agency in the village: the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The NMFS aquarium phone number is (508) 495-2001.

If you plan a visit to the village of Woods Hole, you may wish to visit the NMFS aquarium and other public facilities, including the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Exhibit Center.
