Let the Monterey Bay Aquarium treat you this holiday season. Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito County residents receive free aquarium admission between Saturday, December 5 and Sunday, December 13 during its annual Community Open House.
Free admission for Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito County residents is an annual thank you to the community for its support of the non-profit aquarium. It’s a great time of year to experience the wonders of the aquarium. Admission is good for all aquarium exhibits and programs, including our newest exhibit Tentacles: The Astounding Lives of Octopuses, Squid and Cuttlefishes.
To receive free admission, Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito County residents must present photo ID and proof of current Monterey, Santa Cruz or San Benito County residence at the main entrance to receive free admission. Current student identification from any university or community college located within these counties, utility bills or Monterey-Salinas Transit, Santa Cruz Metro and San Benito County Express monthly bus passes are also valid proof of residence. Free admission is good during regular aquarium hours, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Guests from outside Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito County – including relatives or friends of local residents – can accompany local residents but will be charged regular admission fees.
Community Open House is made possible in part by the support of our Business Partners.
