As a not-for-profit organization, the New England Aquarium depends on member support to help us keep the lights lit, the animals fed and critical research and conservation initiatives going. From financially supporting our core mission to protect our blue planet, to sharing Aquarium adventures with family and friends, to providing valuable feedback that helps us improve our efforts, our members are vital to everything we do.

But membership also gives back! Aquarium members enjoy:

• express admission every day
• valuable discounts
exclusive events, opportunities and insider information
• and so much more!


Whether you’re joining as a member yourself or giving the gift of membership to family or friends, you’re ensuring a full year of entertainment, education and action to address the most challenging problems facing our oceans. Becoming a member is easy! Simply join or renew online, call us at 617-973-6555 or stop by the Membership Desk in the main lobby. Check hours.

We look forward to seeing you here—as an Aquarium member—soon!
