If you’re looking for a family-friendly night out, or something other than the dinner-and-a-movie date night plan, the Mystic Aquarium is hosting some after-hours fun. On Saturday, February 28, from 6 pm until 9 pm, the Aquarium is offering a peek at how their residents get ready for bed.
It won’t be all pajamas and bedtime stories. The sea lions will do one last nighttime show at 6:15 pm. Then, of course, the African Penguins will want to stay up late, so they will strut around beginning at 6:45. There will be hands-on education stations, snacks, and special activities throughout the evening.
Ticket sales for Aquarium After Dark end on Friday, February 27 at 6:00 pm, so purchase your tickets in advance at the Aquarium’s online sales office. Also, take a good look at your children’s birth certificates before you order tickets. I’ve been told that the Aquarium is going to strictly enforce the age limit requirement for this event.
This is an ideal time to renew your Aquarium membership or join for the first time. Aquarium members get a nice, healthy discount off this event as well as off all Aquarium entrance fees, special events, and summer camps. Even if you’re just visiting the Mystic area, a family membership is often just a few dollars more than the daily entrance fee, so it’s the perfect excuse to come back again and again.
