The Shark and Ray Touch Tank will be closed on Wednesday, September 27, for routine exhibit maintenance.
Each visit to the Aquarium supports our mission to inspire deeper connections to the ocean and actions to protect it.
Fall/Winter Hours: Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.; Weekends, 9 a.m.–6 p.m.
Book your tickets in advance to ensure entry since weekends and holidays often sell out! Choose tickets for Aquarium admission, a film at Simons Theatre, a whale watch cruise, or a combination.
The Simons Theatre screens a collection of 3D nature documentaries and films on the biggest movie screen in New England each day.
