There are a lot of perks that come with membership at the New England Aquarium, like express admission all year and discounts at the Cafe and Gift Shop. Now you can add our new Member of the Week recognition to that list. How can members participate? Just show up and visit your Aquarium! We'll be randomly selecting members for this special honor throughout the fall.
This week, we are pleased to name Rachel, Rishi and Devan our Members of the Week. We caught these Westford residents in the Harbor View Café getting ready to enjoy some mid-day snacks with Rishi’s and Devan’s aunt Lauren and cousin Mikah. Our awardees recently moved to Massachusetts from the great state of Texas and joined as Aquarium members just this past August. (Rachel says two hurricanes hit Texas when they first moved there and apologizes for bringing them to New England as well.) Rishi told us that he wanted to see “five things” at the Aquarium today – the first of which being our seadragons.

For being our Members of the Week, they received a free 4”x6” photo from our friends at SharpShooter, a copy of the beautifully illustrated Aquarium souvenir guide book, a turtle shell glass paperweight handcrafted by artist Robin Lehman and each of the boys took home their own plush seal.
So what do you have to do to be our Member of the Week? Just visit! You
could win on any day of the week, any time of day. We'll be announcing
winners right here on the News Blog every Friday. So come on down and
visit Myrtle in her new home in the penguin exhibit, check in with those boisterous sea lions, search for seadragons (like Rishi!), see the little blue penguins
in their temporary exhibit and experience the Aquarium's exciting transformation first hand. Who knows, you could be our next Member of
