    This is a must visit place for anyone visiting Boston. It is expensive for tickets, and parking is not cheap so public transportation is highly recommended. My kids absolutely loved touching the starfish and seeing the seals. We highly recommend the whale watch. Even if you don't see any whales, the boat trip is very exciting for kids! Highly recommend bringing snacks, as they only provide overpriced fast food/junk type lunches (like burgers, chicken fingers, etc)

    The aquarium is spacious and modern. Exhibits are informative. The large Carribean coral reef tank is well displayed with a great variety of fish at different dephs

    Overall, this is a really nice aquarium. The primary wow factor is realizing it's virtually all contained in one large atrium with a spiral walkway up the center and an open-air penguin exhibit across the entire bottom of the room. I love penguins, so being able to see them up close and from slightly above with no glass between us was really fascinating. I also loved the seal and sea lion exhibits being outside (yet covered). It adds a more natural feel to the area, which I'm sure the animals enjoy. I think my only complaint would be that it seems a little small for the ticket price, especially compared to other aquariums across the country. If you purchase a combo pass with other attractions, I'm sure it's a better value. However, all that being said, I was impressed with the number of displays they were able to fit into the space. They made good use of the building's height. I could have probably spent hours watching the center tank - especially the giant sea turtle!

    Absolutely loved the large tank, it was nice to be able to walk multiple ways and see something, we wish it had more larger mammals, but it was nice

    This is by far the best aquarium I have ever been to, and I've been to a few haha. It cost around $90 for 2 adults and a child , but was so worth it, the Ray's were amazing and would come right up to your hand , it was very clean and staff were great especially in the souvenir shop where my granddaughter had a meltdown then needed to swap the toy she had bought. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is visiting Boston or surrounding area

    A wonderful experience. I don’t generally enjoy seeing animals in captivity, but the New England Aquarium is a rescue, rehabilitation and breeding centre. The exhibits are extremely well cared for and are interacted with by staff. We watched the keepers feeding, health checking and playing with the penguins. I hadn’t seen penguins play with bubbles before! The sea turtles were wonderful and their tank was amazing. A Boston must see.

    Overall nice exhibits. Unfortunately some were condensed too close together making it difficult to view due to crowding. The giant ocean tank was very cool, especially the sea turtles. The penguin displays were perhaps some of the nicest I’ve ever seen. Disappointed that there were no large sharks. Got through all the exhibits in a little over 1.5 hours.

    What a wonderful experience. This is a bit pricy but worth the trip for couples and kids alike. Mertle was so cool to see and all the other aquatic wildlife. It is a must-see for Boston and something you won't soon forget.

    The turtles where a big hit with our girls, also the spiral walkway gave them load is opportunities to get great views of the aquarium
