Member Updates

On behalf of our entire Aquarium family, thank you so much for your continued support. Here, you’ll find updates for our members.

Visiting as a Member

Shark and Ray Touch TankMembers gain immediate entry to the Aquarium after checking in at the Information Desk—no need to wait in the ticket scanning line.

Please note:

Because membership materials may take 10-12 weeks to arrive, if you would like to visit the Aquarium within 48 hours of becoming a member, we recommend first purchasing Aquarium tickets online and then applying the cost of the tickets towards your purchase of a membership onsite at the Information Desk (in the lobby) at the end of your visit.

If the admission/ticket credit is not completed onsite, visitors can apply the cost towards a membership via phone up to 3 days following the ticket date by calling our Reservations Department at 617-973-5206.
