Shark & Ray Touch Tank at New England AquariumThe Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank will feature sharks and rays in a 25,000-gallon tank surrounded by shallow edges and viewing windows, allowing visitors to experience a close encounter with these animals.

The beautiful new space replicates a large mangrove area. The rays glide around the tank where visitors have the opportunity to reach right in and touch these graceful creatures.

Whether you choose to actually touch the rays or just watch - this new exhibit is very enjoyable and adds a whole new interactive dimension to the Aquarium.

New! Timed Ticketing! NEAQ is bringing more flexibility to your Aquarium visit with timed ticketing! Buy online or stop by our Box Office, because it's always the right time to touch a ray!

Useful eco-friendly arm dryers are right there in the exhibit for quick drying arms and sleeves.

I have never been here when it is not mobbed.. Is it ever not mobbed? Given the long line to get in and the VERY pricey cost of admission, this is the worst of the Boston 'museum' experiences by far... I wish it wasn't, we love fish....! It is very difficult to maneuver a stroller, and difficult to track two toddlers around given the crowds. Disappointing.
