    Become a member(free) and buy your tickets online, you'll save a ton of time instead of waiting in line! Take a walk around and grab a ticket to the IMax for a little break.

    Unfortunately this aquarium was a let down. Very limited exhibits and all are centered over one large cylinder aquarium. It appears to be large outside but very small inside. Falls low on must sees

    The extra 5 bucks for the IMAX films is totally worth it.

    Wait for the student afternoons or discounted times. See the sea lion show, the huge cylindrical tank in the center, and see an IMAX about sharks. The penguins are hilarious.

    Cool exhibits, but I wish they updated this place 100%... unlike the Museum of Science, nothing here changes, so there's really no reason to keep returning. And they keep jacking up the price!!

    30 Rowe Warf (just a block south of the aquarium) has validated $18 parking. Call the aquarium and press zero (operator) if you get lost.

    There's lots to explore in Boston but the aquarium is a favorite. Be sure to see the divers feed the fish! - Brand Development Manager

    It gets crowded during the weekend, hard to walk around. Not really worth the time or money.

    Don’t miss the renovated Giant Ocean Tank. They’ve got all kinds of marine flora and fauna to see, including Myrtle the Green Sea Turtle, who’s lived there since 1970. Read more

    Very expensive, quite small for the price but had a really big tank in the middle. There is also two tanks where you are allowed to touch stingrays, sharks, starfish and crabs.

    Try to get here while they are feeding the penguins! It is actually really cute to see. Also make sure that you go to the petting area to touch a stingray!
