New England Aquarium

Recommended
The dimmed light gives the illusion of an underwater world. Fish, invertebrates, amphibians and other aquatic animals are divided up according to their different natural habitats, which are represented over four floors and set out around a 700 000-litre centraltank with a bed of coral from the Caribbean which is inhabited by sharks, giant tortoises and species of fish that live in this warm sea. Exhibitions, information panels and demonstrations (don't miss those about the eared seal) help visitors to better understand the life of the species represented. Don't miss the animal treatment centre, films at the IMAX cinema and trips out to sea to see the whales.
