Aquarium offers free weekday admission to employees affected by federal shutdown
Mystic — Mystic Aquarium will offer free weekday admission to all government employees affected by the federal shutdown beginning Monday and lasting through the duration of the shutdown.
Government employees must show a valid work identification. The offer is redeemable at the gate and is valid for government employees only.
“Our local community is directly impacted by the government shutdown, most notably through the Coast Guard and the Naval Submarine Base,” said Roslyn Gilhuly, the aquarium’s senior vice president of external relations. “We have always taken great pride in our role not only in the community but as a destination for family fun and learning. We hope to be able to provide a fun diversion during what is undoubtedly a stressful time for local families.”
