IMPORTANT TICKET INFORMATION: We are aware of a social media scam claiming to offer deeply discounted ticket prices to the New England Aquarium. Tickets may be purchased through this website or through a verified partner like CityPASS.
We strongly encourage all guests to purchase tickets before visiting to guarantee entry, as we sell out on weekends and during school vacation weeks.
The Shark and Ray Trust Family Touch Tank is under repair and currently closed. We apologize for any inconvenience.
