Timed Tickets

Hours of Operation

9:00 am to 4:00 pm

 Last ticket sold at 2:00 pm.

The time on your ticket indicates your earliest arrival time. The typical visit is 2 hours at Mystic Aquarium, but you’re welcome to stay longer. 

Tickets are sold in timed intervals to ensure our guests’ and staff members’ safety and allow for close monitoring of occupancy. 
Purchasing and/or reserving timed tickets must be done online for each person in their party including children 2 and under prior to your visit.

Timed tickets will be sent to your email as a .pdf attachment and can be scanned on your phone.

Please note: You must have a ticket when you arrive at the front gate to gain entry to the Aquarium. 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 before their reserved time slot.


Guests who typically receive admission through the CT and RI SNAP EBT and Feinstein Junior Scholars programs must also reserve tickets. Click on the embedded link above for reservation instructions.
