When you arrive, an Aquarium employee will greet your bus and direct your group. If your bus isinstructed to leave, please contain your group in a designated area away fromthe Group Check-In Booth and the Aquarium. Your group may proceed into the Aquarium after the head chaperone has checked in and each child has received a hand stamp for admission. All chaperones will receive yellow stickers for identification.

Group Check-In

Upon your group’s arrival, have the head chaperone check in at the Group Check-In booth (see the Aquarium map for location). If there is inclement weather, Group Check In may be moved to a Ticket Pick-Up Window and, if that is the case, signs will be posted.

At the Check-In booth, you will need to provide final headcount and payment, as well as obtain an Aquarium map, schedule and yellow sticker for each chaperone, and store any lunches. If lunch vouchers or concession packs were ordered, these will be ready for pick up. Each child will receive a hand stamp for admission.


Onsite bus parking is not available; your bus will be able to pick up and drop off only. Please make sure your bus uses the bus identification permit you received with your registration packet. Bus parking is available for a small fee at the John Joseph Moakley Courthouse aswell as at the Boston Autoport in Charlestown.

Car parking is available a number of sites near the Aquarium, some of which provide validation discounts.
