For your safety, all Aquarium visits now require a timed ticket for both members and non-members that must be reserved online.
Member tickets are FREE, but you are still required to reserve a timed ticket online using a PROMO CODE. More information below.
Hours of Operation
9:00am to 6:00pm; last admission at 5:50pm

Tickets may be reserved for the following entry times:

Guests without a ticket will be denied entry and encouraged to purchase tickets online and return for entry. We also ask that you stay in your vehicle in the Aquarium parking lot until the time period of your reservation begins. Guests will not be granted access outside of their time slot.
Our Guest and Member Services team will be operating at a limited capacity to assist with membership and ticketing issues only. Purchasing and/or reserving timed tickets must be done online prior to your visit.
Admission is contingent upon adherence to the safety precautions listed here. Mystic Aquarium reserves the right to deny access to any non-compliant guest.
