We visited the aquarium as part of the Go Boston pass and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The main huge tank in the centre was stunning with so many sea creatures to see. We saw penguins being fed and everyone who were visiting seemed to...More

We decided to go to this aquarium because of the kids. While they enjoyed it, it was small and wayyyyy overpriced. We spent over $100 to get in... two adults...a 5 year old and an 11 year old. Outrageous! Also...parking at the garage was $40...again...way...More
This aquarium has a lot of hands on activities for children. When I arrived they were feeding the penguins and the commentary was extremely informative. It was clear that the staff loved the animals and took time to get to know them.

The imax movie about a sea turtle, “turtle odyssey” was the best. A quick flick about a turtles life. My 13 year old loved it. The aquarium is kid friendly, lots to see and do. Was a great day!!!! A quick walk from the train...More

We got skip the line admission to the Aquarium when we purchased our tickets in combination with the Duck Boat Tour. The Aquarium appealed to the three generations of our family. We particularly enjoyed the penguins and the hands on touch the sea creatures exhibits.
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.
Never been to Toronto, but do report, if you will go! Boston Aquarium is very interesting. It has more, then I expected to see. Week days are probably less crowded. It is a real treat to see how the fish being fed! Stingrays... More
Never been to Toronto, but do report, if you will go! Boston Aquarium is very interesting. It has more, then I expected to see. Week days are probably less crowded. It is a real treat to see how the fish being fed! Stingrays are the funniest, they get all over diver's face to get food! I loved it! And I pet one or two of those too!
