NORWALK, Conn. – The deadline is approaching on a deal that lets Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts save on admission – and earn a limited-edition patch – during the activity-packed Scout Day on Saturday, March 12, at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.
Discounted Scout Day admission is available to Scouts – and also to adult Scout leaders and to families of Scouts – registering by Monday, Feb. 1. The discounted prices are $11 for aquarium admission, and $15.75 for aquarium admission plus an IMAX movie.
These Scout Day prices are the same for all ages, and represent significant savings for adult tickets compared to regular pricing. Scouts registering by Feb. 1 also receive a unique Maritime Aquarium Scout Day event patch.
Beginning Feb. 2, regular admission prices will apply: Aquarium – $19.95 for adults; $17.95 for youths (13-17) and seniors (65+); and $12.95 for children (3-12). Aquarium and IMAX – $24.95 adults; $22.95 youths & seniors; and $17.95 children.
Scout Day at The Maritime Aquarium offers hours of fun for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of all levels. As a troop, or with their families, Scouts can get close to sharks, seals, sea turtles and all of the Aquarium’s marine animals, most of which are native to Long Island Sound.
Also, for a fee, Scouts can take part in Maritime Aquarium educational programs that support badge requirements. Times and costs of the Aquarium-led programs vary. Advance registration by March 1 is required. Aquarium admission is required.
As a special Scout Day bonus, Scouts can see the new IMAX movie “National Parks Adventure,” playing on the Aquarium’s six-story screen more than two months before it opens to the public.
It will play on the hour, March 12, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Scout Day at The Maritime Aquarium is hosted by the Powahay District of the Boy Scouts of America’s Connecticut Yankee Council.
The aquarium is located at 10 N. Water St., Norwalk.
