In the penguin exhibit, visitors can see several different species of the animal, including rock hoppers, African penguins and little blue penguins.

One of the highlights of the aquarium are the seal training sessions, where guests can watch as fur seals and harbor seals show off their tricks.

Another main attraction is the shark and stingray touch tank, where kids and adults alike get a hands-on experience with the animals.

For other activities, visitors can check out a movie at Simons IMAX Theatre, or ship out of Boston Harbor for a whale watching tour.

The aquarium, located on Boston’s waterfront, is located right by many popular sites, including Faneuil Hall and the North End.
