Mystic Aquarium and Seaport offering combo ticket

Visit both through the rest of the year

Two of Connecticut’s largest cultural attractions – Mystic Aquarium and Mystic Seaport Museum – have teamed up to offer the Mystic Pass, a combination admission ticket. 

This combination ticket offers affordable family fun and enrichment at each of the iconic destinations.  

The Aquarium and Seaport enjoy a strong partnership as the centerpiece of the area’s tourism industry. The Mystic Pass is another example of the joint effort to drive visitation to the region. 

The Mystic Pass is offered for adults, seniors and children ages 3-14. Kids 2 and under are free at both attractions.  

For nearly a decade, the Aquarium and Seaport have worked together to present the Mystic Pass; affording savings to consumers. In years’ past, the combination ticket was offered seasonally in the spring and summer. This year; however, the two organizations have expanded sales of the Mystic Pass to include the fall and winter.  

“During these difficult times, we recognize the importance of Mystic’s cultural institutions working together to make the Aquarium and Seaport more accessible to everyone,” said Steve Coan, President and CEO of Mystic Aquarium. 

“Our respective educational missions of ecological conservation and historical preservation realize their value only when we can deliver the experience to families and visitors of our community, and the Mystic Pass is a reflection of our commitment to do just that.”  

Mystic Aquarium offers a fun and exciting family-friendly experience that includes an up-close look at more than 5,000 animals, including New England’s only beluga whales and the endangered African penguin. This Halloween, there are special pumpkin feedings throughout the day in habitats around campus. Mystic Aquarium also offers unique animal encounter experiences that foster a deeper appreciation for the animals, their conservation stories and the environment. 

Mystic Seaport Museum offers guests a trip into the past where they can explore America’s maritime heritage in an historic 19th century village, a working shipyard and in compelling indoor exhibit galleries. This Halloween, the campus will be decorated at night with more than 500 jack-o’-lanterns for a spooky walk accompanied by live music, food and family activities. 

“We are pleased to be able to once again offer the Mystic Pass to guests so they can experience and enjoy both of our attractions at a reduced cost,” said Steve White, president of Mystic Seaport Museum. “The town of Mystic is an easy day trip for many on the Northeast and the Pass is a great way to build an affordable weekend trip for the family.” 

Both organizations are keenly focused on the health and safety of visitors during COVID-19. New and comprehensive safety protocols have been implemented on both the Aquarium and Seaport campuses to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all visitors, staff and volunteers.
