Aquarium Homeschool Days 2023

$0 - $21 (per person)

Sep 5 - Dec 19

9:00am - 6:00pm

New England Aquarium


Visit the aquarium on Tuesdays (from September to December) for homeschool pricing.

  • $21 (for adults -- 38% savings)

  • $12 (for kids -- 52% savings)

  • Free (for children under 3)

The aquarium requires you purchase tickets at least one business day in advance by calling the Reservations Department at 617-973-5206. Contact for more information.

You can also request a free one-day pass from your local library to visit any day. Valid for a family of 4. If your family loves the aquarium, a membership ($109 - $305) may be a great option as it pays for itself after a couple of visits.

There are 5 garages within 0.3 miles of the aquarium that start around $22.

The aquarium has a ton of worksheets and guides on ecology, ethology and zoology to help you make the most of your visit. You can check out some of their resources here and here.

You can also observe penguin feedings and the giant ocean tank from home. The aquarium's youtube channel is another great way to learn about ocean life and their impact on it.
