Maryland Mornings Returns to the National Aquarium


As part of its continuing effort to ensure that Marylanders have affordable access to one of the country’s top aquariums, the National Aquarium has announced the return of their Maryland Mornings program.

Maryland Mornings, which launched in 2012 and runs from September through February, provides Maryland residents who visit before noon Sunday to Friday $10 off adult tickets and $5 off children tickets. Tickets are available on-site to those who reference the program at the National Aquarium ticket center and show proof of residency.

The National Aquarium offers numerous community access programs throughout the year including Half-Price Friday Nights, presented by M&T Bank, which provides visitors half-off admission pricing year-round on Friday evenings after 5 p.m.; Dollar Days, where visitors can enjoy a $1 admission fee for two days every December; and, returning this fall, Pay What You Want Day, made possible with generous support from T. Rowe Price, will take place on November 1 and allows Maryland residents to donate an amount of their choice for admittance.
