Everyone loves the penguins, and so will you. More than 80 birds live in the massive first-floor exhibit. Explore all around the exhibit, peer through the underwater periscope, play with the penguins at the penguin light station and listen to penguin sounds at the Hear a Penguin interactive panel. Curious visitors can also learn more about penguins at the Penguin Smart Station, participate in a Penguin Presentation or watch a penguin feeding.
The Aquarium’s penguin exhibit surrounds the Giant Ocean Tank, and can be seen from almost everywhere in the Aquarium. The exhibit holds more than 150,000 gallons of fresh, clean, filtered salt water from Boston Harbor.
