behind the scenes tours at new england aquarium photoLearn exactly what it takes to run the New England Aquarium day to day.

From making sure the animals are healthy to inspecting the tanks and introducing new animals into the exhibits, Aquarium biologists work hard every day to make sure the Aquarium runs smoothly. (After all, the animals still need to eat on weekends and holidays!)

Now itís your chance to get a peek at the life behind the glass.

Join an educator for a personalized behind-the-scenes tour of one of our many galleries. You will learn what the animals eat, how their tanks are maintained, how sick animals are nursed back to health, and other insider tidbits.
