Family fun at Mystic Aquarium’s ‘Summer Nights’

Connecticut Families

In the warm months the daytime hours are busy, so why not plan a family day trip, at night?

Head to “Summer Nights” at Mystic Aquarium, where the destination will be open once-a-week in the evening.

Assistant Curator Carey Richard says an “off-peak” visit makes for a unique experience.

“Because we have daylight later into the evening, the ambience is going to be more soft than it is during the day.”

One of the aquarium’s most popular residents, Juno is the Beluga Whale who happens to love the camera!

95-percent of the aquarium will be open during “summer nights”, including the popular main gallery featuring hundreds of fish, and a brand new exhibit called “Jurassic Giants”.

“We have over ten animatronic dinosaurs, and they’re kind of the coolest things ever seen.”

There’s a lot to discover at the aquarium from morning, to night.

“What a great time to come home and as your kids say, ‘I’m bored, I’ve been bored all day’, take them out at night. Something completely unexpected enrich them and their lives and enrich you.”

Starting July 9th, “Summer Nights” takes place every Monday from 6 to 9pm through August.
