This Boston aquarium attracts 1.3 million visitors a year with its variety of attractions including a 200,000 gallon four-story Giant Ocean Tank that simulates a Caribbean coral reef and houses hundreds of reef animals such as stingrays, eels, turtles, and a large assortment of fish.

Explore marine life around the world and get up close with exhibits like the shark and ray touch tank and Edge of the Sea's tide pool touch tank where you can get friendly with lobsters, hermit crabs, and sea stars. The giant Pacific octopus will be waiting for you as its cuttlefish cousins dazzle you with their color changing displays. For more personal encounters, the aquarium has immersive animal encounter programs to meet seals, sea lions, and Myrtle the turtle.
