Dollar Days

Sunday, December 10, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Dollar Days, an annual Baltimore tradition, are back! On December 9 and 10, 2017 admission to the Aquarium is just $1.

Tickets for Dollar Days will only be available on-site at our ticket window on the days of this special event. Because of extremely high demand, tickets are not available in advance and will not be available online. Our timed entry system will be in effect, so guests may experience a wait time between receiving their tickets and Aquarium entry.

The National Aquarium will be open for normal December business hours on Dollar Days. Tickets for Dollar Days will be available starting at 10 am and last entry is at 4 pm; guests may tour for up to 90 minutes after the last entry.

Guests planning to take advantage of this special opportunity should be aware that, due to the anticipated popularity of this event, crowds will be heavier than usual and the Aquarium is expected to sell out. Please plan your day accordingly.

When does the ticket booth open?

Tickets will be available for purchase beginning at 10 am.

When will tickets sell out?

While we cannot know exactly when tickets will sell out, we recommend that guests arrive at the National Aquarium early to purchase tickets. Ticket sales will begin at 10 am.

Does your whole group have to wait in line for tickets?

One person may wait in line for tickets for your whole group; however, there is a limit of 10 tickets per transaction, and the number of tickets requested may not exceed the number of guests present in the party.

If the immediate entry time is sold out, can I buy the next available time?

Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Our timed entry system—which allows us to sell a fixed number of tickets within set time slots every day—will be in effect, so guests may experience a wait time between ticket purchase and Aquarium entry.

Is this event only open to Maryland residents?

Dollar Days are organized each year by Downtown Partnership of Baltimore, and it is our pleasure to participate. While the event is designed to celebrate our local community, there are no restrictions to visitation.
