This special event places a 43-foot inflatable humpback whale into the Aquarium’s central Newman’s Own Hall. Stand next to the whale to get a real sense of the creatures’ size – especially to realize that some humpbacks (and some other whale species) can grow even bigger. Have your phone ready too, because it’s a great selfie – you and a whale!  There’s even an opening that allows guests to play Jonah and go inside the whale to see its internal organs, including its lungs, heart and stomachs. (Most baleen whales have three stomach compartments.)

Also during “Celebrate Whales” Jan. 7-16, bonus educational stations will let Maritime Aquarium guests touch real baleen, experience first-hand how blubber keeps whales warm, and – in displays created by NOAA’s Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary – learn the dangers that whales face on their annual migration.
