Free Admission to Florida Aquarium for Federal Workers Affected by Shutdown

More than 800,000 federal employees have been furloughed or working without pay since the government shutdown on December 21, 2018. The Florida Aquarium hopes to help offer some support by offering free admission to  workers affected by the shutdown with their federally issued ID.

“We know that government employees are facing hardships right now,” said The Florida Aquarium President and CEO Roger Germann.  “Free admission to any place where they can come and relax for a little bit is the least we can do during this stressful time.”

Things to do at the Florida Aquarium? 

Explore the wetlands exhibits, see the coral reef community and all the various and colorful sea creatures. Children will love the interactive and renovated splash pad area located just outside the cafe area. Don’t forget to stop by the 4-D Theatre which combines the visual drama of a 3-D digital film with a variety of multi-sensory effects such as bubbles, scent, snow, FX lightning, water mist, seat vibrations, and even wind.

There is so much to see at the Florida Aquarium’s exhibits. Take a stroll and enjoy all the wonderful sea and fresh water animals. Please note that parking is $6.
