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

Some parking tips:

  • The Boston Harbor Garage is the parking option closest to the Aquarium. Discounted validated rates are available for members, Whale Watch visitors and IMAX patrons. Less expensive parking is available in the area, especially on weekends and holidays—check the table and map below.
  • Park and take the T. 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!
  • School groups should review the special instructions for bus parking near the Aquarium.
  • Handicap accessible vehicles, please use this parking comparison chart (pdf) to find parking near T stations and verify garage clearance.
  • Oversize vehicles: Several area garages have high clearances that can accommodate oversize vehicles. The Aquarium has arrangements with 75 State Street (6' 9" clearance) and the Garage at Post Office Square (7' 6" clearance). Other area garages with high clearances are 641 Lewis Wharf (open-air), 225 Franklin Street (9' 7" clearance) and the Intercontinental Hotel (7' 10" clearance).
