Car Parking

The Aquarium does not own or operate any garages, and all parking rates shown are subject to change without notice. Some parking tips:

  1. The Harbor Garage

    This is the parking option closest to the Aquarium. Discounted validated rates are available only for Aquarium members, Whale Watch visitors, and IMAX patrons after 4:30 p.m. Less expensive parking is available in the area, especially on weekends and holidays.

  2. Park and Take the T into Boston

    Inexpensive parking is available at major MBTA stations around Boston. The Aquarium is located at the Aquarium stop on the MBTA Blue Line. It's a cost-effective option—and it's better for the environment!

  3. Oversize and Handicap Vehicles

    Several area garages have high clearances that can accommodate oversize vehicles. The Aquarium has arrangements with 75 State Street (6-foot, 9-inch clearance) and the Garage at Post Office Square (7-foot, 6-inch clearance). Other area garages with high clearances are 641 Lewis Wharf (open-air), 225 Franklin Street (9-foot, 7-inch clearance) and the Intercontinental Hotel (7-foot, 10-inch clearance).

School groups should review the special instructions for bus parking near the Aquarium.

Handicap accessible vehicles, please use this Aquarium parking sheet to find parking near MBTA stations and verify garage clearance.
