We are so excited to get back to the Boston Aquarium!  The museum has worked hard to reopen safely. So we can get back to visiting the penguins and giant sea turtles (definitely family favorites over here).

WCKC recommends getting your timed tickets early, especially for February vacation week, as they are limiting capacity.

So what is available to see?

Some of the current exhibits include: Indo-Pacific Coral Reef, Atlantic Harbor Seals, Penguins, Giant Ocean Tank, Olympic Coast, and more! Visit the aquarium map for a visual.

What you can expect for a safe experience:

  • Masks required.
  • Social distancing in effect with one-way traffic.
  • Limited Capacity.
  • Some exhibits closed.
  • Purchase timed tickets.
  • If traveling from out of state, please visit the Mass.gov site for protocols.
Boston Aquarium Mission and Vision

It is the only Boston-based cultural institution with a mission focused primarily on the environment, promoting the importance of protecting the blue planet through innovative exhibits and educational programs.
