Newport Aquarium: Winter Family Days

We like to go the Newport Aquarium but tickets for all 5 of us add up pretty quickly.  Now is the time to save!

January & February mean “Winter Family Days” at the Newport Aquarium.  2 children ages 2-12 get in Free with each adult paying full price.  Full price adult tickets are now $23 each.  Kids under 2 are always Free.  The aquarium is open 7 days a week from10 am – 6 pm.

Go early to see the Penguin Parade.  It happens everyday at 10:15 am on the plaza in front of the aquarium or inside the aquarium lobby during bad weather.  This is free for all whether you are a paying guest of the aquarium or not.  See the Daily Activities Schedule for others events throughout the day.

Just like the Manatees at the Zoo, I could watch the Jelly Fish for hours!
What is your favorite thing to see at the aquarium?

    Do kids have to have a ticket for the free day? If we get adult tickets through a hotel deal, do we need to get kid’s tickets too?

      Alicia, The way I understand it is the 2 free kids tickets come with each full price adult admission purchased. I don’t think tickets received through a hotel deal would count as full price. It’s worth a phone call though.

        Thank you so much for posting this news. You are correct, Becky, that this offer cannot be combined with any other discounts or coupons including hotel packages.

        There is one small correction to the original post: Full-price adult tickets are $23.

        Thanks again! Hope you all can visit soon.

        We just updated the post with the new ticket price. Since it’s over a year old, it was outdated so thanks for letting us know the new information!
