To assure the best possible visit for your family, advance online reservations are required for Passholders. Here are suggestions for the “Best Times to Visit” Newport Aquarium to help make the most of each visit. Late summer, fall and early winter are generally the LEAST busy times at Newport Aquarium.
For the best experience consider visiting after 2 pm on weekdays after the majority of our Group/School Group visitors have left for the day; or before 11 a.m. or after 2 pm on weekends and holidays.
Because we are a family-friendly destination the MOST busy days are when school is not in session like:
Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend
President's Day Weekend
Spring Break (the weeks before and after Easter Sunday)
Memorial Day Weekend
July 4th Weekend
Labor Day Weekend
Christmas Holiday Week (from the day after Christmas through the Sunday after New Year's Eve)
Newport Aquarium is a popular choice for field trips, especially weekdays in April (except during Spring Break); May & Mid-June; as well as for Summer Camp Groups in July and August. Arriving after 1 PM is recommended on those days.
Annual Passes expire one year from date purchased. No refunds, cancellations or transfers. Prices, benefits and event dates/times are subject to change without notice.Make A Reservation
