Find the nearest octopus

The hot and steamy days of summer are upon us, and those uber-cool cold-water superstars in our brand new octopus exhibit are the hottest sea creatures in the city.

You may have seen these eight-armed brainiacs and their tentacled cousins on light posts, subway billboards, and towering over Kenmore Square.

Tentacles Take Hold in Park Street
And soon you'll see them squirt across your small screen.

So. It's about time that you get to the Aquarium and see these mind-boggling tentacled animals in person. Here are some tips to help maximize your tentacle time during the busy summer season:
  • Arrive before 10:30 a.m. or after 3:30 p.m. to avoid peak times.
  • Take advantage of our summer hours and carouse with the cuttlefish even later in the afternoon — until 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and until 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays.
  • Save on parking fees (and live blue) by using public transportation. 
  • And save paper by buying tickets online and showing them on your smart device (also a great way to skip the line).
