This is what progress looks like.

In 2007, we set out on a mission to create the next generation aquarium right here in downtown Boston. We worked with partners and supporters to grow our conservation and research initiatives, expand our education programs and create exciting exhibits on Central Wharf.

We're your non-profit aquarium

The New England Aquarium is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of environmentally minded people like you to advance our mission to protect the blue planet. Together we can continue to build on the Aquarium's recent achievements and make a real difference for the oceans.
