VISIT THE NEW ENGLAND AQUARIUM
Let your imagination swim wild with a visit to the New England Aquarium. Marvel at the bustling penguin colony, and then circle the four-story Caribbean coral reef teeming with sea turtles, eels, barracuda, tarpon, and hundreds of tropical fish.
Your Aquarium adventure includes playful seals, eye-catching jellies, and unforgettable hands-on experiences at the Shark and Ray Touch Tank exhibit.
Your visit helps! Each admission supports the Aquarium's global conservation and research efforts.
Science of Sharks
Dive deep into the Science of Sharks with the newest exhibit at the New England Aquarium. Get up close to some small but mighty shark species from around the world. Hands-on activities illuminate the remarkable adaptations that give them an edge in the water, while the shark and ray touch tank lets you see — and feel! — these adaptations in action. The New England Aquarium is the place to find out why these magnificent ocean predators are even
more incredibly cool than you thought.

VISIT THE SIMONS IMAX® THEATRE
The giant screen – 65’ high by 85’ wide – is taller than a six story building! The slight curvature of the screen extends to the edge of your peripheral vision. The lamps that project the crystal clear images onto the gigantic screen get as bright and as hot as the surface of the sun! So hot, in fact, that cold water must be pumped into the lamp connectors to keep the machine from melting.
Amazing IMAX films will take you where you've only dreamed of going! Join us for incredible journeys to the bottom of the sea, outer space, and almost anywhere in between. Through the magic of IMAX and IMAX 3D, you can visit animals and habitats that are too large, too small or too endangered to exhibit in an Aquarium setting.
