How incredible it would be to come in after all the visitors have left for the night and explore the Aquarium without the crowds? Mystic Aquarium has a wonderful night planned just for you, your family and a small number of “soon to be” new friends. Explore cool frogs, learn about amphibians in danger, create a really cool craft and even work on a scavenger hunt! Finish it off with a light evening snack and falling asleep next to your favorite indoor exhibit giving your family that perfect experience. All of the evening activities are geared for youth, ages 5-12. Dinner is not served during the overnight, so please remember to eat prior to checking in. Continental breakfast is provided. Children must be accompanied by a paid adult (children must be at least 5 years old to participate). Questions? Contact Reservations at bhirsh@mysticaquarium.org
