The aquarium is nice, but the wait in lines is rather long. You can get whale trips to go see humpback whales from here, that leave at 10 am and last about four hours. I did not get to go because I found out my last day here, but I hope to return.
It may not be as big and varied as Seaworld and some other marine life parks, but the Aquarium holds a special place in my heart. Every child in Boston goes there growing up on field trips and they do a great job with the space provided. I see they recently added an IMAX theatre as well.
Although there aren't a lot of good reviews concerning the aqarium it's really not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. And that's really all you need-a couple of hours. To be located on the oceanit's actually smaller than most that I have been to. (Cincinati, New Orleans, and Gatlinburg.) But they have an interesting array of aquatic life and a great IMAX theatre. At last check "Aliens of the Deep" was playing. Really, the best way to view the aqarium is to use your free admission if you go on a trolley tour. Otherwise, the admission price of $16.95 IS a little steep.
The New England Aquarium is located in downtown Boston next to the harbor and features a wide variety of fish and other marine animals. The featured attractions are the penguins and a large tank that simulates a caribbean reef. The aquarium also has an IMAX theatre.
I love aquariums and so the New England aquarium was a must for me. I'd recommend it.
There are seals and sea lions and if you want to know the difference between the 2 I suggest you see the sea lion show (with Tyler).
If you're lucky you'll see them feeding the penguins.
There's even a touchy pool where you can touch star fish!
I never know that there are so many types of jelly fishes until I visit the New England Aquarium!! There are many types of fishes being displayed too.... the focus of the aquarium is a large cylinder shape tank that houses more than 2000 species.... there are sea turtle, shark, dolly, ray etc.......
Lots to do at the aquarium! Right now. "The Polar Express" is playing on the IMAX and they have a seal exhibit. You really need to check out their website to see what special events they have going on.

The New England Aquarium was remodelled around 1999-2000. Alot of new exhibits were introduced including new penguins, Africa’s Inland Sea exhibit, and an activity center for hands-on family learning. A new IMAX theater was opened as well, showing IMAX movies (Harry Potter and Spiderman among the most recent ones) and 3D documentaries like Ocean Wonderland.
I visited recently as they had an amazing exhibit on jelly fish. My favorite!
This is a great place to bring kids (and adults!) of all ages.
If you love penguins, go to the Aquarium. There's tens of them in a big pool in the ground level. Noisy and cute. Then, as you go up to the other levels you'll see hundreds (thousands?) of interesting fish and sea creatures. There's a small shallow pool with hermit crabs. You may touch them.
