About New England Aquarium

When you visit The New England Aquarium, you’ll be witnessing a global leader in ocean exploration and marine conservation.
Home to thousands of aquatic animals, you’ll find amazing and varied species, such as northern fur seals, giant Pacific octopus, African penguins, and more! You will even get to touch mussels, sea stars, sharks, among others. The New England Aquarium offers many great exhibits, such as the largest shark and ray touch tank on the East Coast, and the Giant Ocean Tank which is a four-story coral reef home to Myrtle the green sea turtle and hundreds of other Caribbean animals. Families will also love the largest IMAX screen in New England!
The New England Aquarium is one of the premier visitor attractions in Boston and a major public education resource for the region!
