Mystic Aquarium

While capacity limits and special events restrictions under Phase 2.1 of Governor Lamont’s Reopen Connecticut Plan has led us to step away from our participation in Olde Mistick Village’s Festival of Lights this year, plans for our annual food drive to benefit the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center will proceed with the help of longtime partner Mystic Transportation.

For the month of November, we are partnering with Mystic Transportation and the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center to serve as a collection site for non-perishable food items. To help support this critically important food drive, simply bring non-perishable food donations to Mystic Aquarium when visiting during your advanced timed-ticket reservation. A collection bin is located just inside the main entrance for donated goods.


It’s our wish that visitors joining us on-campus this holiday season will give generously to this critically important campaign.

Guests are reminded that advance purchase, timed tickets for admission are required under the Governor’s phased plan.

Since the inception of Festival of Lights, thanks to the generosity of guests, we have delivered tens of thousands of pounds of non-perishable food to the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center. Help us grow that number for 2020 by visiting and donating this November!
