MYSTIC — Connecticut and Rhode Island Electronic Benefit Transfer cardholders will receive free access to Mystic Aquarium, 55 Coogan Blvd.

Effective immediately and running through Dec. 31, EBT cardholders will simply show their EBT card and valid, matching personal identification to receive free admission to Mystic Aquarium for themselves and up to three guests. The newly revised program also allows the card holder four additional guest tickets to be purchased for $5 each. Admission will be free for children age 2 and under.

The expanded admission policy will allow families and individuals to enjoy not only the long-standing favorites like beluga whales, penguins and sharks, but also Mystic Aquarium’s new Wild Arctic augmented reality exhibit. Also coming this spring are two additional exhibits including yet another interactive touch experience.
