Mystic Aquarium is pleased to introduce Plan-Ahead Pricing to give our guests the opportunity to plan a visit for a day that best accommodates their budget and schedule.
Ticket prices are determined based on a number of key factors including day of the week, holidays, local events and expected attendance, developed as a result of extensive research with the help of expert economists.
Tickets purchased by at least midnight the day before your visit date will always be less expensive than tickets purchased on the date of your visit. The further in advance you purchase, the more likely you are to save.
Enjoy the Aquarium’s indoor and outdoor exhibits for a fun, educational and inspiring experience that also includes a complimentary California sea lion show and multiple interactive experiences like shark touch experience, the ray touch pool and others.
Aquarium admission, choice of 4-D or Blue Theater and Boomerang Island (seasonal).
