By now, we all know that Mystic, Connecticut was voted the #4 best Summer travel destination in the country by USA Today- and with good reason! Mystic is an amazing spot to visit, with so much to see and do. Two of the most popular places to add to your summer bucket list are the Mystic Seaport Museum and the Mystic Aquarium. With the Mystic Pass, you can purchase tickets to both the seaport and aquarium together, and save on admission to both attractions!

The Mystic Seaport Museum’s grounds cover 19 acres on the Mystic River and include a recreated New England coastal village, a working shipyard, formal exhibit halls, and state-of-the-art artifact storage facilities. It is home to the 1841 whaleship Charles W. Morgan, America’s oldest commercial ship still in existence. It was also recently named one of the 25 most beautiful landmarks in America by Trips to Discover!

The Mystic Aquarium is one of the most unique experiences in the country! It is the only aquarium in the U.S. that has Stellar Sea Lions, one of three to work with Northern Fur Seals, and it’s the only aquarium in the New England area to house Beluga Whales. With so much to see and explore, the aquarium is entertaining for people of all ages!

Here’s how the Mystic Pass works:

Visit and select “Mystic Pass.” It will bring you to a page where you can select the number of adults and number of children who will be attending, with a max of twenty tickets.

You will be brought to another page where you will select your dates you wish to attend. This offer is good until December 31, 2023 and you can choose any dates up until then! You can visit the aquarium and seaport on the same day (but we recommend two different days so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy each!) or spread out your visits to whatever works for you. For Mystic Seaport tickets, you are only required to choose the day you wish to attend, but for the Mystic Aquarium, they also ask you to choose a time. Once you have selected the dates you wish to visit each place, you can add them to your cart for one easy checkout experience!

Here is an example of what your cart would look like buying a Mystic Pass for two adults and two children:

The Mystic Pass is the best deal if you’re planning to visit both the Mystic Aquarium and the Mystic Seaport. It’s your pass to the best that Mystic has to offer! Not only is it simple, but you also get a discount for buying them together!

At this point, you can check out. You enter your personal information that is required and your billing information. Once you have paid, the passes will be emailed to you for your convenience! The Mystic Pass is the perfect way to see both the Mystic Aquarium and Mystic Seaport if you’re traveling from out of state. The tickets are good for a one time use, on the day/s that you selected. This is not the same as a membership, and those can be purchased on the respective websites, or in person at each location.

We hope this helps answer any questions you may have about the Mystic Pass. If you visit these amazing places, please make sure you share, and tag @think_mystic so we can see!
