The Children's Museum is turning 100, and we're celebrating, too!

The Boston Children's Museum is turning 100 this year. What a delightful opportunity for us to celebrate this fun place for kids and our neighbors here in Boston! On this special occasion, the museum will be docking its inflatable birthday cake here on Central Wharf on Saturday, October 5, from around 1:00 to 3:00 pm. We're going to provide some extra special ocean-themed activities to make this a real party. Best of all, everything is free and open to the public.

Roast Beef the African penguin will make a special appearance during the festivities.

So what do we have up our sleeves? Well, there will be a brief special appearance from the Aquarium's tuxedoed ambassador Roast Beef, the African penguin. Families will also have opportunities to mingle with our costumed characters, stretch and jump with a round of sea star aerobics, play ocean-themed dress-up and  get your picture in our photo station.

The party is happening behind the Aquarium in the outdoor space overlooking Boston Harbor. Don't forget, activities are free and open to the public. Bring your friends! Admission to the Aquarium is not included, but you can buy your tickets in advance so you can pop in to say hi to the rest of the penguins when you're done partying with friends from the Children's Museum.

Come see the inflatable cake, which will be docked on Central Wharf during the festivities.
(The barge will not take passengers here, but as you can see, the cake's plenty big to see from shore!)
