What Subway to take from Boston aquarium to Boston Science museum?

If you want to take just the subway, you can get on at the Aquarium stop which is right outside the aquarium. That is the Blue Line. Take that inbound to Government Center and switch to the Green Line outbound. Get on a train that says Lechmere on the front/sides and take that three stops to Science Park. The science museum is right there.
