"No giant tank. No problem at the Aquarium." — Boston Globe

Progress on the Giant Ocean Tank transformation has been exciting in recent weeks. Still, we all miss the big tank a little bit. But what folks might not realize is that there's still a lot to see at the Aquarium right now. A whole lot. And you don't have to take our word for it.

An article in Sunday's Boston Globe shares the story of one Globe staffer's trip to Central Wharf with his 2-year-old son. The shark and ray touch tank and hands-on tidepool area were big hits. The pair spent time exploring the smaller, more intimate exhibits on each level. Then came the little blue penguins and the marine mammal center.

"Watching Cal’s nose pressed up against the glass, I realized we could have stayed for hours, giant tank or no giant tank." — Geoff Edgers, The Boston Globe
