The New England Aquarium is reopening July 16, and we are so excited to welcome you back. On behalf of the entire Aquarium, thank you for your continued support!

As we reopen, the safety and well-being of our guests, team members, and animals are our top priorities. Please review this page for important information before you visit.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SAFETY
The New England Aquarium has carefully monitored and complied with guidance from the CDC and worked closely with officials from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the City of Boston to implement the following safety measures to protect public health.

* Implemented a one-way travel path
* Required mask wearing
* Suspended interactive exhibits
* Installed additional hand sanitizer stations
* Reduced attendance to maintain social distancing standards
* Installed touch-free entry
* Increased frequency of cleaning and are regularly disinfecting high-touch areas
* Posted signage throughout the building about how to safely navigate the Aquarium

Thank you in advance for your cooperation to help us maintain a safe environment!
