Going behind the scenes of our construction project

Have you seen the Globe Magazine's images of our comprehensive construction project yet?

Much of the exhibit path is still open to visitors and our marine animals (like Myrtle the turtle, the octopusgoliath groupers and seadragons) continue to delight visitors. However, Aquarium visitors can definitely  tell that change is in the air in our main building.

Sunday's spread gave Globe readers a special look at the incredible work happening behind the scenes and the off-site preparations that go into creating the new Aquarium experience.

Hardhats are a must in the construction zone, including this space in the attic above the tank.

The renovation project will be completed in early summer, 2013. Come visit to see the Aquarium being transformed before your eyes! See all the the Globe's pictures here.
