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.
Congratulations to Glenn and Nancy from Waltham, our Members of the Week, who visited the Aquarium with grandchildren Katherine, Sydney, Amy and Harrison. The family was watching the moray eels peek out from barrels in the Tropical Ocean Exhibit when we met them, just before they noticed one of the Aquarium’s newest residents: Indo is a 6-foot long male zebra shark with bold spots on his body. Nancy told us that they used to visit the Aquarium with their children and now G’Mom and G’Dad, as the kids call them, come with their grandchildren.

For being our Members of the Week, they received this free 4”x6” photo from our friends at SharpShooter, a copy of the beautifully illustrated Aquarium souvenir guidebook, a turtle shell glass paperweight handcrafted by artist Robin Lehman, and a plush seal for each of the kids.
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, see seals and sea lions at play, search for seadragons, 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 the Week!
