NileGuide Expert tip:
The New England Aquarium is open while being renovated (summer 2012-spring 2013). Although open,many exhibits have been displaced and a visit may want to be withheld until complete.
The adventure begins before you step foot through the door. Watch the Harbor Seals swirl around in the outdoor tank while you wait for tickets, or linger when you finish and recount your time inside. A four-story tank spans the center of this aquatic marvel; filled with marine life this is a sight to be seen. Catch a show in the glass enclosed classroom, plunge your hands into the touch tank or pop by the children's room with your little ones. Whale Watch cruises are available seasonally and are a special way to enhance your day.
