Your Aquarium, your night. Now with more tentacles!

Our members deserve the best—like the exclusive opportunity to experience Tentacles, after hours and away from the crowds. So we’re planning a members-only evening on Monday, June 27, to show how much we appreciate you. Bring your family and friends to enjoy your Aquarium on your night!

Look for the giant Pacific octopus in its newly expanded habitat brimming with species found in the chilly depths of the Pacific Northwest. Eye the cuttlefish levitating in its tropical tank while the chambered nautilus jets through its inky dark display. From petite red octopuses to graceful sea jellies, dive into the dazzling diversity of these mysterious ocean animals as Tentacles take hold at the New England Aquarium!

So come on in, explore these and all favorite exhibits, learn and see something new and even enjoy a treat from our cash snack bar. Plus, attending members receive an extra discount in the Gift Shop during the event.


This is a free, members only evening. No reservations are required but admission is strictly limited to the number of admissions permitted with your membership level. We regret that no exceptions can be made.
