Aquarium Happenings


Sensory-Friendly Evening

On Thurs., July 18, The Maritime Aquarium presents a twist on its occasional “Sensory-Friendly Mornings” by instead offering a “Sensory-Friendly Evening” for guests with sensory-processing differences.

Just like the “Sensory-Friendly Mornings,” this “Sensory-Friendly Evening” acknowledges that, for some people, the Aquarium is a place with too much stimuli. So accommodations will be made on July 18 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. to give guests with sensory-processing differences a fun, comfortable and accepting experience.

During the "Sensory-Friendly Evening," lights will be lower, and music and other sounds will be turned down or off. The Aquarium also will show the IMAX® film "Superpower Dogs" at 7 p.m. with lower volume and the theater lights less dim.

Reduced admission for “Sensory-Friendly Evening” is $15 for adults, $13 for seniors (65+), and $10 for children (3-12).
