Watch nearly 90 penguins streak through the water of the penguin exhibit. Go eye-to-eye with graceful sea turtles as they soar among stingrays, eels, and schools of tropical fish in the four-story Giant Ocean Tank. Feel the smooth wing of a cownose ray glide beneath your fingertips in The Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank. Step outside to marvel at energetic fur seals and sea lions romping in the open-air New Balance Foundation Marine Mammal Center overlooking Boston Harbor.
With more than 70 exhibits, the Aquarium is a must-see destination for families, animal lovers, and adventurers alike.
Be sure to save time for a super-sized adventure at the Simons IMAX® Theatre and a New England Aquarium Whale Watch, which leaves from the Aquarium’s dock and takes passengers to see whales feasting in Cape Cod Bay. The Harbor View Café features a convenient menu for many palettes, and the Gift Shop has something for everyone.
The New England Aquarium has been a destination on Boston’s waterfront for more than 40 years. Find out why. Join the tradition by making it your family’s destination for interactive exhibits and enchanting aquatic characters.
