Watch the ocean life swimming around you, from seals to sea lions, penguins, sea turtles and jellyfish. Touch the stingrays in their pool, and try and catch the octopus when he's changing color - that's a sight you don't see every day.

Walked right up to enter the aquarium while others waited in line to buy tickets. We did not visit IMAX.

The New England Aquarium is one of the nicest aquariums I've visited in the US! There is a great variety of sealife from all over the globe, and the exhibits are very informative. The staff is very helpful & courteous. The spiral design of the interior is unique!

While everyone was standing in a line that went on forever, we stepped aside and bout our tickets through this venue...skip the a matter of less than five minutes I completed the purchase for my family of 3. We walked to the door, the aquarium scanned the phone and we were in. Simple.
