Since 1972, the Aquarium has been providing free lectures and films by scientists, environmental writers, photographers, and others. Lectures are free and open to the public.

Most past lectures are recorded and available for viewing on the lecture series archive page.

Check back later this summer for our fall lecture line-up. 


The Aquarium Lecture Series is made possible due to the generous support of the Lowell Institute. Founded in 1836 with a mission to inform the populace regardless of gender, race, or economic status, the Lowell Institute has reached thousands of Boston-area residents by sponsoring free public lectures and other educational programs.

Email with questions.
