More Halloween treat than trick at the Aquarium!

With spooky eels gliding about the Giant Ocean Tank and lionfish lurking in the tropical gallery, let the Aquarium add some spooky to your family's Halloween activities. And there's an extra special TREAT in store for festive families! The New England Aquarium and Boston DUCK Tours based at the Aquarium are teaming up to offer kids 11 and younger in costume and accompanied by a paying adult, FREE admission on Halloween day. That's Sunday, October 31!

The Aquarium’s four-story Giant Ocean Tank will be decorated with jack-o'-lanterns nestled amid on the corals, and the scuba divers will be in their soggy Halloween best! Aquarium hours on Sunday, October 31, are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Once you've had your fill of the fascinating creatures of the deep, hit the streets with a Boston DUCK Tour! Board a DUCK based at the Aquarium to tour the Hub in one of the weirdest yet coolest vehicles ever made. DUCK drivers, or ConDUCKtors, are in costume and character every day. Free admission is only for chaperoned kids in costume on the Boston tours leaving from the Aquarium, not from any other DUCK Tour sites. Boston DUCK Tours will operate at the Aquarium from 12 noon to 5:30 p.m.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

Children 11 years old and younger must be in costume in order to take advantage of this special offer. Children in costume without a supervising adult will not be admitted. Free admission is for the Aquarium and the Boston DUCK Tours leaving from the Aquarium only, and does not apply to the Simons IMAX Theatre or Whale Watch.
