In the middle of the main hall is a four storey high aquarium but it is worth walking up to the top looking at all the other tanks because there is so much to see. The little eels that stick up out of the sand...More
This aquarium is a must in Boston and for the best experience get the city pass as it's comes to 130$USD ish but you get your money's worth in the attractions you can go see and when you calculate it you do save a lot!...More
Visited the aquarium during my visit to Boston in Feb. Penguins were fun to watch and also the huge display of sea lions was also enjoyable but it is nothing compared to sea world for the sheer variety. However not a bad place to spend...More
I’m from Atlanta so this review might not be so fair...nothing compares to Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. Sorry to digress- we went on rainy day- fun for a few hours. The penguins and walruses are great and...don’t miss Myrtle the 90+ year old sea turtle-...More
Loved it here, but visiting on labor Friday was a BIG mistake. 2 adults didn't have a chance of seeing very much with the influx of children with parents who had no spacial awareness.
I would love to visit again on a quieter day when...More
Visited on our vacation and to be honest was expecting more. Penguins and sea lions were ok and there were plenty of fish which the younger kids enjoyed but overall I think it is expensive for what it is. Appreciate they are doing good work...More
We have friends visiting from Australia. Just so happens we have a few hours to kill so we came here to Rowe’s Wharf and the waterfront. The place was packed on a Saturday afternoon. Lots of families. Can’t blame them, it’s a great place for...More
I visited with two adult daughters and their companions. They were willing and able to tolerate the ridiculous heat and humidity of the entire building -- I was not. They put up with the uncontrolled circulation on the circular ramps, where people, many many many...More
After a 4 hour trip out to the Stellwagen Bank feeding ground (see separate review) we decided to visit the Aquarium which is just beside the Boston Harbour Cruises
His , in fact you can buy a combined ticket! The aquarium is good but I...More
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
Especially on “school days” 1-2 hrs is the most you will need or can stand. Very crowded, School escorts letting teenagers run in packs. Not to be negative, if you a small adult crowd or good child management with parents... More
Especially on “school days” 1-2 hrs is the most you will need or can stand. Very crowded, School escorts letting teenagers run in packs. Not to be negative, if you a small adult crowd or good child management with parents, the day would be better. Suggest you elevator to floor 4 & work your way down!
