The New England Aquarium

The New England Aquarium is an aquarium located in Boston, Massachusetts.  Nearly 50 years ago, the New England Aquarium opened its doors to the public. The New England Aquarium is a catalyst for global change through public engagement, commitment to marine animal conservation, leadership in education, innovative scientific research, and effective advocacy for vital and vibrant oceans.

The Aquarium provides educational resources and activities for teachers, families, kids, and adults.  Explore all that it has to offer:  Pet a sea star.  Meet a lobster.  Cradle a hermit crab in the palm of your hand.  Watch frisky and flexible northern fur seals fly through the water and interact with their trainers on the decks of the New Balance Foundation Marine Mammal Center.  The New England Aquarium is one of only three aquariums in the U.S. that cares for this remarkable species.

 

The Friends of the Lunenburg Library are eligible to request Museum Passes to many museums, zoos, and living environments throughout the State.
