The National Aquarium in Baltimore has some special deals lined up for Maryland residents to get in cheap, including days when admission is just a dollar and another when visitors can pay whatever they want to get in.
- Pay What You Want Day — allows Marylanders to donate whatever they want for aquarium admission. The first Pay What You Want Day will be held Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, and donations will support the National Aquarium conservation efforts.
- Dollar Days — when admission is just $1, in conjunction with the aquarium’s downtown neighbors. Dollar Days will be Dec. 6 and 7. Tickets are available on-site and must be purchased on the day of the visit.
- Fridays After Five — special pricing after 5 p.m. on Fridays will now continue year-round. The price through March 2015 is $12 and cost for tickets beginning in April will be announced this winter. Tickets for Fridays After Five are available online and on-site.
- Maryland Mornings — runs from September through February and offers $10 off adult tickets and $5 off children tickets for Maryland residents who visit before noon, Sunday through Friday. Tickets are available on-site to those who reference the program at the ticket center and show proof of residence.
“These new programs are designed to give residents of our city and state ever-greater access to what is, after all, their aquarium,” said Aquarium CEO John Racanelli. “Our hope is that these enhancements will allow all Marylanders to become better stewards of the national treasure in our backyard: the Chesapeake Bay.”
