Want to get friendly with some fish, or maybe learn a little about our oceans? Behold Boston's most visited tourist attraction, the impressive New England Aquarium, where the star attraction is a 200,000-gallon giant ocean exhibit! Watch the ocean life swimming around you, from seals to sea lions, penguins, sea turtles and jellyfish. Touch the stingrays in their pool, and try and catch the octopus when he's changing color – that's a sight you don't see every day.
Marvel at the bustling penguin colony, then circle the four-story Caribbean coral reef teeming with sea turtles, eels, barracuda, tarpon and hundreds more tropical fish. Your Aquarium adventure includes playful seals, eye-catching jellies and unforgettable hands-on experiences at our shark and ray touch tank. With fish from our watery backyard and reefs around the world, the Aquarium will delight families and ocean lovers alike.
