CT Family Day & National Grandparents Day

Special Events


Mystic Aquarium is celebrating CT Family Day and National Grandparents Day on Sunday, September 9. Mention either of these days when you purchase tickets in person to receive one free children’s general admission with each paid adult or senior general admission. This offer is valid only for CT residents. Proof of residency is required.

For the past 15 years, state agencies and community organizations across Connecticut have been collaborating to honor families with Connecticut Family Day. Connecticut Family Day—marked on Sept. 9 each year—was launched by Senator Crisco in 1998 with an essay contest and has grown over time. This year, a committee led by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) has assembled a statewide celebration that will promote and support family activities at five locations across the state. These events will also honor grandparents in recognition of National Grandparents Day, which falls on Sept. 9 this year.
