Share your birthday with us!
While the Aquarium does not have a dedicated space for your child’s birthday celebration, we do have some exciting birthday party options, including IMAX birthday parties and a self-guided group visit to the Aquarium.
Most birthday parties are designed for kids age 5 and older— at a minimum, the birthday child must be turning 3 regardless of the age of other participants.
IMAX parties are our most popular option:
The Simons IMAX® Theatre at the New England Aquarium can make your next birthday party larger than life! Join us for an exciting IMAX presentation!

- Can include a digital photo of the birthday child displayed on our giant screen for a $5 fee (photo must be provided three days before the event)
- Includes a special birthday greeting before the film for the birthday child
