Boston Activities

Come discover thousands of marine animals, both big and small, at the New England Aquarium! Meet sea turtles, wave “hello” to our friendly penguins, touch sharks and stingrays, be memorized by jellyfish, and watch sea lions at play.

The four-story Giant Ocean Tank features a brand new coral reef, an underwater communications system, large windows and hundreds of Caribbean reef animals, including sea turtles, stingrays, eels and fish.

The Penguin exhibit is home to more than 80 penguins who live in a bustling colony found on Level 1 surrounding the Giant Ocean Tank. The Aquarium breeds African penguins as part of a Species Survival Plan and promotes education programs about penguins.

The Amazon exhibits hold more than 4,500 gallons of water. Several of the exhibits feature large windows that reach nearly to the floor, providing perfect viewing opportunities for small children.

The Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank features sharks and rays in a mangrove-themed tank surrounded by shallow edges and viewing windows, allowing visitors to experience a close encounter with these animals.
