Hands-On Areas for Kids
You and your kids are invited to get wet and dirty while having fun and learning about the blue planet at the New England Aquarium.
- Touch a passing ray or shark at The Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank.
- Cradle a sea star, pet a horseshoe crab and get to know a sea urchin at the Edge of the Sea touch tank.
For more ways kids can get up close with Aquarium animals, see our Tours and Programs page.
