Tickets are sold in timed intervals to ensure our guests’ and staff members’ safety and allow for close monitoring of occupancy. Admission is contingent upon adherence to the safety precautions listed here, i.e. facial covering and mandatory temperature screening. Mystic Aquarium reserves the right to deny access to any non-compliant guest.
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.
*Please Note: In order for proper discounts to apply, tickets for active-duty, veteran or retired U.S. military member must be reserved separately from those purchased for dependents, resulting in two separate online orders.
