The New England Aquarium, which opened in 1969, is a global leader in ocean exploration and marine conservation. The Aquarium is one of the premier visitor attractions in Boston, with over 1.3 million visitors a year, and a major public education resource.
The Aquarium recently completed a major renovation project, and the Giant Ocean Tank has undergone a top-to-bottom, 21st-century transformation.
The Music Hall, built in 1878, has been designated an American Treasure by the federal government.
It's certainly considered a treasure in and around the New Hampshire Seacoast region, featuring live musical and comedy performances, films, readings by world-famous authors, and more. The lobby was recently restored in a fanciful Beaux Arts style that itself is worth a visit.
