Take a field trip with your group and learn about the blue planet.

Community-serving organizations are eligible to apply for free admission for your group.

Our goal is to create an opportunity for all Boston and Cambridge residents to learn about the ocean and marine life, particularly for those who can perceive a field trip to the Aquarium to be overwhelming or find admission cost prohibitive. A great way to visit the Aquarium for the first time is with an organization or group that community members trust.

Groups can apply for up to 100 tickets total for youth and adult admissions. Please note that we require at least a 1:10 ratio of chaperones to youth.We cannot offer free admission to community groups during school vacation weeks. School groups are not eligible for free admission through this program. School groups can apply for free admission as part of the Aquarium’s Free to Learn Admission Program.
