The health and safety of our guests and staff have always been and will remain the top priority of The Maritime Aquarium. As we re-open our doors to the public, we have implemented policies and procedures in order to adhere to the recommended guidelines by the State of Connecticut and the Center for Disease Control while still ensuring our visitors enjoy an entertaining and educational experience.
As always, when you visit, our staff and signage will help guide you through the Aquarium so that you have a smooth experience, but there are some changes that you need to know both before you visit and while you are here. We know that there is a lot of changes these days, so we have created an easy way to remember the key things you need to know ... WAVES!

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is a non-profit organization and relies upon donors and visitors to fund our mission. Supporting other non-profits in our community, we offer a discounted community support ticket package available to qualified organizations. You must provide your I.R.S Determination Letter. Purchase a community support ticket package of four Aquarium admission tickets for $26.95 from the Members Window cashier here at the Aquarium. Community support ticket package is not available online or over the phone. Registration is required. Only one package is issued per organization per fiscal year: July 1 – June 30. Also, the total number of tickets available for community support is limited on an annual basis.
Our goal is to support bona fide community organizations in our Aquarium's sphere of influence. This special ticket package may not be used the same day of purchase or given to your organization's employees. We reserve the right to refuse this offer to anyone.
If your organization does not qualify, another wonderful option is to purchase a Maritime Aquarium gift card good for Aquarium admission, IMAX movies, even cruises aboard our hybrid-electric research vessel for a truly unique auction item. Gift Cards can be purchased here at the Aquarium. We appreciate your support. Like your non-profit organization we rely upon generous donors, in quantities small and large, to accomplish our mission.
