Explanation of Benefits:

Single-Use Tickets

Single-use tickets can be given to anyone you choose, allowing them immediate entry to the Aquarium through the member entrance. These tickets are good for the duration of your annual membership. Corporate members may also purchase additional single-use tickets in bulk at a 20% discount.

Multiple-Use Transferable Passes

Multiple-use transferable passes are a convenient, flexible resource that allow optimal access to the Aquarium for you, your clients, customers and employees. These credit-card-style passes may be used once a day, every day, for the duration of your membership.

Private Event Rental Credit

Make your next corporate event a destination and use your credit toward renting space for a private corporate event held against the stunning backdrop of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the Aquarium’s award-winning exhibits. With several picturesque and versatile spaces available, an event at the Aquarium is always an unforgettable experience. Exclusions apply; please contact your corporate membership representative for details about using this benefit.

Touring Night

Treat yourself and up to 1,000 of your closest friends to an exclusive, private, self-guided evening tour of the Aquarium. It will be a night to remember, with opportunities to explore everything the Aquarium offers, minus the daytime crowds. Should you elect not to use this opportunity yourself, you may donate the tour to an organization of your choosing.

Discounted Individual Membership

Discounted individual memberships provide your employees with $10 off the purchase of their own individual Aquarium memberships. We are pleased to extend this offer to your organization’s stakeholders who wish to personally support the Aquarium’s mission and visit as often as they like.

A Co-Branded Online Ticket Portal

A co-branded online ticket portal extends your corporate discount directly to your employees. Through the portal, staff members can purchase and print their own single-use tickets, valid for one year, at a special rate of 20% off. The portal can also be used to purchase additional bulk tickets for your organization to supplement the stock of single-use tickets included in your membership package.

Community Connections

Community Connections allow the National Aquarium to share your generous support with eligible nonprofits that apply for and will benefit from Aquarium access. If your organization works with nonprofit organizations that might like to participate the Community Connections program, please encourage them to apply and list your company as the referring organization. The application, eligibility information and guidelines can be found at aqua.org/communityconnections.


The benefits that correspond with each membership level are fixed and cannot be switched or substituted. To learn more about strategic corporate partnership opportunities that offer high-impact philanthropy and customized integrated marketing initiatives, please visit aqua.org/partners or contact the corporate team.
