We are extending all Memberships by four months from your current expiration date. We are thankful for the support of our Members, and are committed to giving Members the full value of their Membership.
For many years, Mystic Aquarium and the Connecticut Science Center have been proud to offer reciprocal admission to their Members to enjoy each other's facilities during the month of March. During these unprecedented times, we were forced to cut that period short. Both organizations are committed to providing our members with the full value of their membership. We will be making an announcement about the reciprocal program in the future as we evaluate evolving public health guidelines and determine the best path forward. Please be sure that your email is on file with the Membership Office to receive the most up to date information about your Member benefits and special opportunities.

The Butterfly Encounter experience is currently closed for now. Although the air is purified and it is a very clean environment, it will take us some time to get it ready for guests.

We’ll have more information when we announce the reopening date for Butterfly Encounter.

Maintaining Safe Social Distancing
The Science Center strives to maintain a clean facility and consistently receives high marks from our guests for the cleanliness of our exhibit spaces and restrooms. In the wake of the public health concerns around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we have augmented cleaning protocols with a specific focus on areas and surfaces with frequent guest contact. Our “Clean Team” has been trained on best practices for preventing the spread of germs and viruses. In addition, our employees engage in frequent hand washing and encourage guests to do so as well.
