New England Aquarium

We also went to the New England Aquarium last weekend. To be honest it was ok but I wouldn't go back. It was overpriced, overcrowded and very small. I had read several reviews that said just that but we had a few members of our party who wanted to go anyway. There was a huge cylindrical tank in the middle of the building that was very cool, a penguin exhibit at the base of the tank, two seal tanks outside, a touch tank that was so crowded you couldn't get near it, and a bunch of standard tanks on the wall. If you find your self in Boston skip the aquarium and do one of the many other thing the city has to offer. It just isn't worth your hard earned money.

We are not huge fans of the Boston Aquarium either-Mystic is much nicer. You should so there next, we really liked it.
