The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk (formerly Maritime Center) is an aquarium located in the South Norwalk (or "SoNo") section of Norwalk, Connecticut.

The aquarium has seals, river otters, steely sharks, jellyfish, loggerhead turtles, and hundreds of other animals living in re-creations of their natural Long Island Sound habitats. There are two touch tanks that feature smooth stingrays, crabs, sea stars and other coastal creatures.

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is one of Connecticut's top tourist attractions. Annual attendance averages 500,000 visitors, with about 100,000 of them from New York state. The Maritime Aquarium's estimated state-wide economic impact is almost $42 million; it contributes approximately $25 million to Norwalk's economy every year.
