Pay What You Want Day

Your Aquarium

The National Aquarium is proud to once again offer Pay What You Want Day, made possible with the generous support of T. Rowe Price, our official community engagement sponsor. On November 6, 2016, guests may choose their admission price to access nearly 20,000 animals in our award-winning exhibits.

Pay What You Want Day is part of the National Aquarium’s continuing effort to encourage Marylanders to reconnect with the world’s aquatic treasures and become inspired to protect the Chesapeake Bay and all aquatic habitats. Extended hours for this special offer are 9 AM to 5 PM, and guests may elect to add a 4-D Immersion Film experience to their visit for $5.

In addition, the National Aquarium and our official parking facility partners are pleased to offer $10 parking to guests attending our 2016 Pay What You Want Day. To take advantage of this discount, please use either LAZ Inner Harbor Garage at 100 S. Gay Street or Lockwood Parking at 124 Market Place. Bring proof of your Aquarium visit to garage attendant before departure and you will be granted this special rate.

Guests planning to take advantage of this special opportunity should be aware that, due of the popularity of this event, National Aquarium crowds may be heavier than usual. Please plan your day accordingly.

In addition, guests planning to visit as part of our First Sundays early admission program for guests with special needs may enter at 8:30 AM, but should make note of the event overlap and anticipate increased crowds.
