Corporate Membership Explanation of Benefits

The benefits that correspond with each membership level are fixed and cannot be switched or substituted.

Tickets are for one-time use and 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.

Passes are multiple use and transferable, offering a convenient, flexible resource that allow optimal access to the Aquarium for you, your clients, customers and employees. Passes may be used once a day, every day, for the duration of your membership. You may choose credit card-style passes or access to our self-service online pass reservation calendar.

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 on our Community page.

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 us for details about using this benefit.

A ticket portal extends your corporate discount directly to your employees. Your 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.

This benefit gives your employees $10 off the purchase of their own personal 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.

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.
