A museum 100% dedicated to children, great isn’t it? Promise that none of your children will complain about visiting the Boston Children’s Museum. Among the 18 permanent exhibitions offered, everything has been thought out so that the little ones can discover for themselves and rack their brains to solve puzzles.

You can easily spend the day there!

The Boston Aquarium is definitely impressive with its huge four-story cylindrical tank allowing you to observe dozens of marine species. Each of the floors offers a completely different spectacle depending on the depth at which the different species live.

The guided tour is compulsory and lasts an hour, but is worth the effort. It will allow you to visit the surprising green roofs and the locker rooms of the players. A memorable visit! $21 for adults and $15 for children. If you have young children, prefer the baby carrier to the stroller to make the visit easier.
Board the ship USS Constitution
The end of the famous course of the Freedom Trail (a nice walk to do on foot with the children) leads you to the port of Charlestown where floats this huge ship of the American navy which took part in the war of 1812. You can board the 3 masts for free and go down in the hold of the boat to explore every nook and cranny. A few steps away is the museum USS Constitution which tells the maritime history of the United States. It’s really interactive and not boring at all for kids.
