Welcome back!

We are excited to announce a phased reopening in accordance with Governor Ned Lamont’s Reopen Connecticut Plan. Access to the Aquarium will be limited to outdoor spaces at 50% occupancy.
On behalf of our entire staff, we are incredibly grateful for your continued support throughout this crisis and your trust in us as you prepare to return to Mystic Aquarium!

We look forward to opening the gates to all guests on Friday, May 22.
The Aquarium will host a soft opening for MEMBERS only, on Wednesday, May 20.
On Thursday, May 21, Mystic Aquarium is proud to welcome all frontline workers to visit for free.

As we welcome our guests back, we have made some very important changes to the visitor experience to help ensure the safety of guests, employees, volunteers and, of course, the animals in our care.
We strongly encourage you to visit our website for a complete overview.

To ensure proper social distancing, Mystic Aquarium will limit the number of visitors on campus at any one time to enjoy the outdoor exhibits as facilitated by time-entry for ALL guests. Click here for details.

Mandatory temperature screenings, facial coverings and PPEs, deep cleaning and training protocols have also been implemented. Click here to learn more about temperature screenings.

You’ve always known our mission - to inspire people to care for and protect our ocean planet. During these unprecedented times, we are keenly focused on protecting our community as well.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
