The Texas State Aquarium has announced five discounted “Community Days” for 2019, offering guests admission of to the state’s largest aquarium for just $2.

The first Community Day of 2019 will be on Jan. 21, presented by NavyArmy Community Credit Union. Additional Community Days will be held in February, October, November and December.

The aquarium says “Dollar Days” will no longer be offered, but Community Days will continue to provide guests an opportunity to experience the Aquarium several times a year at a special discounted rate.

“We believe that these upcoming Community Days will provide our guests with a more relaxed and family-friendly experience than on Dollar Days in previous years, where attendance often exceeded 10,000 in a single day.” said Texas State Aquarium President & CEO Tom Schmid. “We’re thankful for the support of H-E-B, Whataburger, NavyArmy CCU and our other partners which make these community-oriented events a possibility.”

According to the aquarium, guest admission from Community Days, along with the support of corporate partners, will go towards supporting the Aquarium’s operations, including animal care, staffing and a variety of wildlife conservation and wildlife rescue programs.

The aquarium says that due to the anticipated significant increase in attendance on Community Days, regular presentations and visitor programs will not be provided.

Tickets are available for sale on-site on Community Day only. There are no tickets available for purchase in advance or online for those dates.
