Visit to New England Aquarium

Postby ying » Fri Feb 12, 2010 11:23 pm

The New England Aquarium is one of the top 10 aquariums in the united states. I would highly recommend anyone to visit the aquarium if you are in the Boston area. I've been there many times already. The company that I work for has some kind of partner/membership relation with the aquarium so I get unlimited free admission :) . Yes, I can go there for FREE as many times as I want! :mrgreen:

A ticket cost $20.95 but it's definitely worth it. They also have the Whale Watch programs. I didn't really enjoyed the whale watch thing when I did it a few years back because it was a long two hours boat ride. You can find more information about the aquarium at http://www.neaq.org

The aquarium is located fairly close to the downtown area and it's easily accessible by public transporation. I would recommend taking the blue line subway train because the last time I went there with my car a few weeks back the parking fee was an outrageous $30! The "Aquarium" train station is only two blocks away from the aquarium so you can get there in less than 3 minutes walk.

Inside the building there are three main sessions. The freshwater exhibits are against the wall and the 3 stories high giant saltwater tank is in the middle separated by the penguin tank.
