New England Aquarium is a fun and educational family event. They have a variety of aquatic creatures in naturalistic habitats. From penguins greeting you as you are entering the aquarium to a wonderful 25 minute sea lion show (located in the ship docked next to the aquarium) where you can watch trainers interact with these animals. From coaxing them to do a trick, to asking them to wave to the audience. Another fun thing to see is the divers in the tank as they fed the sharks.
