New England Aquarium


At the time of its construction in 1969, the New England Aquarium had the largest circular saltwater tank in the world. Aside from housing hundreds of different species of fish, mammals, and reptiles and hosting more than 1.4 million visitors each year, the aquarium features New England's largest screen, the Simons IMAX Theatre.

Fun Fact: It takes divers nearly 500 hours a month to feed all the creatures in the saltwater tank.
