We visited this Aquarium over this past Saturday with two small children (3 and 4). There were 5 of us total, and we had 4 tickets already purchased...but they still made us wait in an HOUR LONG line to purchase ONE ticket! That was very...More
I've been to the Chattanooga Aquarium, so that's my only frame of reference, but I didn't think this Aquarium had as much to see. They have some really cute penguins that were funny to watch.
In the middle they have a 3 or 4 level...More
The Short Story, pay attention to the off shore weather. The tip should have been when they were hosing the boat off, it wasn't to rinse off the salt water, it was to clean the vomit off the boat. My wife and I, athletic and...More
The coolest thing in the aquarium is the giant tank in the center...other than that kindda boring. PACKED WITH KIDS! ONE HOUR WAIT IN LINE to buy tickets! PARKING WAS $32.00 MORE THAN OUR TWO tickets we bought to get into the aquarium.
The penguin exihibit is great, as is the giant tank in the middle with huge turtles, beautiful fish and sharks swimming by. There is an IMAX theater with great films including the new U2 movie. My family had a terrific day.
What makes the aquarium is the Tank in the middle I thought that was quite unique and beautiful. I know it is the main focal point of the aquarium, but I felt like that was all that was there. I look for the wow factor...More
I have visited the New England Aquarium since I was a kid and it gets better with age. Plan accordingly though since this place gets mobbed on the weekend. The place sits in the harbor in downtown and is very large and now includes two...More
We just visited here 2 days. Let me start with the place was really expensive 30.00 for myself and my 6 year old to get in. We went in the afternoon and it was really crowded too. There isn't that much to see. The center...More
Since having kids I have been to the Aquarium twice. It is quite expensive ($17.95 per adult, $8.95 for kids over 3) so a family of four is in this for about $60.
You MUST go either early on a weekday or weekend or don't...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!
