The New England Aquarium is committed to providing interactive and informative programming for students in homeschool programs.


Every Monday in November, the New England Aquarium invites Home school Families to visit and experience special programming and pricing on these quieter fall days (school group admission limited).    Homeschool families can buy tickets in advance or at the gate at the group rate of admission ($11.95 for kids, $18.95 for adults).   Make your reservations in advance and receive free adult admission (one per child).

 Programming opportunities are scheduled throughout the day for students to explore such as Live Animal Presentations, Marine Mammal talks, Behind-the-Scene tours (additional fee required) and pop-up programming on set topics.  A full schedule will be posted in October.  Advanced registration will be encouraged for some activities.
Self-guided visit suggestions will be posted here to guide your experience on topics such as careers, adaptations, habitats and ocean change, as well as turtles, marine mammals, penguins, sharks and invertebrates.  Activities will encourage focus on content learning and science skills as well as support math and literacy development.  Pick and choose a focus area to guide your own experience through the Aquarium.

Please visit this page in October for registration information.
