Thank you for your interest in the New England Aquarium Library Discount Program. Details regarding the 2020-2021 Half-Year Program are as follows:

  • Only public libraries may participate in the program.
  • With your payment of $450 your library will receive a book of dated coupons, one coupon per day through August 31, 2021.
  • You will also receive a single “Mulligan” coupon, which can be used on any date during the program year. It is provided to enable you to resolve a situation when a coupon reserved by a patron has been misplaced or incorrectly distributed.
  • Distribution must be free of charge to library patrons. Libraries may not charge a fee for coupons.
  • Each coupon admits up to four people for a reduced admission of 50% off per person. This discount applies to full-price adult and child admission rates. Children under age 3 are not included in the admission count and are always admitted free.
  • Due to limited capacity, increased demand, and timed ticketing, Aquarium admission is not guaranteed on the particular date of the coupon. Therefore, we are extending library coupons for up to one week after the date of the coupon.
    • – Please distribute coupons one week prior to the date of the coupon. This will allow your patrons extra time for reserving a timed-ticketing slot.
    • – We will honor the coupon for one week after the date of the coupon.
  • Your library’s patrons will have the opportunity to book in advance by phone (617-973-5206) or onsite at the Box Office. We encourage booking as far in advance as possible. Please refer your patrons to our Offers and Discounts page for instructions.
