What You Can Expect

New England Aquarium Admission

New England Aquarium

The New England Aquarium is one of the premier visitor attractions in Boston with over 22,000 members and 1.3 million visitors each year.

Start on the front plaza, where a slice of New England rocky coast and 42,000 gallons of water are home to resident harbor seals. Look for a massive globe, featuring the oceans, continents and animals that call this blue planet home.

Step inside for New England Aquarium admission, where informative and entertaining live animal presentations happen every day, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with their favorite aquatic animals. Watch fur seals interact with their trainers. See turtles eat right from the hands of divers, including Myrtle, a 550-pound green sea turtle, who has been living at the Aquarium for more than 40 years.

“Sea” it all: sea turtles, sea stars, sea urchins, sea lions and sea dragons, not to mention snails, hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs, shorebirds, lobsters, goosefish, octopus, piranhas, anacondas, salmon and many more.

Like penguins? The New England Aquarium’s penguin exhibit is home to more than 80 of them — African penguins, Northern and Southern rockhopper penguins, even little blue penguins.

Then there are tanks. The largest “tank” on the East Coast features more than 100 animals, including cownose rays, Atlantic Rays and sharks, and the centerpiece exhibit, a cylindrical 200,000-gallon Giant Ocean Tank featuring turtles, sharks, eels, stingrays, tarpon and many more, including colorful tropical fishes.

Relax and experience an unforgettable IMAX movie in 3D, like Humpback Whales, Great White Shark or Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean.

Purchase a snack at the kid-friendly Harbor View Café or head to Faneuil Hall for a quick lunch — and don’t forget to grab a souvenir at the Aquarium Gift Shop before leaving.

Not my first trip to the aquarium, but as usual a beautiful place. Staff friendly and helpful. Only downside was that we went during April vacations and it was extremely crowded.

I really enjoyed visiting the Aquarium. Everything about our trip was great, I can't down load pics, as I don't know how.
