Explore the Secret World of Penguins. Come to the New England Aquarium this year and learn all about those beloved birds that fly underwater—penguins! There are more than 80 birds and three different species in our colony. With their signature waddles and festive attire, it's amazing to watch them bounce around their island territories and rocket through the water of their 150,00-gallon exhibit.

But just wait until you learn their secrets. Use your adventure guide at decoding stations throughout the Aquarium to uncover the power of penguins' underwater super speed. Peek into the hidden burrows where penguins care for their young. See all the tricks they have up their feathers. You are about to become a penguinologist—one of the many allies penguins have.
