  • You can have an extraordinary experience: Hosting your celebration at the Aquarium gives you and your guests the opportunity to dine privately among penguins, sharks and sea turtles, or beside Boston’s scenic skyline. And you’ll be helping to support this nonprofit’s mission at the same time.
  • The event spaces are one-of-a-kind: From the Main Exhibit Gallery with its 200,000-gallon giant ocean tank centerpiece and the West Wing Gallery that houses the largest shark and ray touch tank on the East Coast to the tentable Harbor View Terrace, the settings are some of the most arresting anywhere.
  • Menus feature ocean-friendly seafood choices, and environmentally-friendly silverware and linens are available.
