CT & RI EBT Ticket

For your safety, ALL Aquarium visits now require a timed ticket and must be reserved online.

Connecticut and Rhode Island SNAP EBT benefit cardholders will continue to receive complimentary admission but MUST reserve a timed ticket online using the link. The link will pre-load your code, and you can reserve your tickets.

Complimentary general admission is available for the benefit cardholders and up to three (3) guests. Children 2 and under are free. No additional guest tickets are available for purchase at this time. 

Card holders must show their EBT card, valid matching personal identification and timed tickets to enter the Aquarium.

All other eligibility requirements still apply.

hours of operation

9:00 am to 5:00 pm

 Last ticket sold at 3:00 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.
