Aquarium to offer free admission on Duluth Community Day

Great Lakes Aquarium in partnership with the city of Duluth will hold its annual Duluth Community Day on Wednesday, February 19.

The one-day event includes free admission and free parking for guests during Aquarium business hours. Great Lakes Aquarium is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Special features this year include complimentary face painting courtesy of The Duluth Downtown Waterfront District Clean & Safe Team and volunteers, animal encounters on the exhibit floor as well as a full schedule of daily interpretive programs. The Feel Connected jellyfish and the Unsalted Seas sturgeon touch pools will be open all day for visitors.

“Since we started Duluth Community Day two years ago we’ve had nearly 5,000 people from around the area attend this free event,” said executive director Jay Walker. “This year is special. It’s the 20th anniversary of the Aquarium’s opening in Duluth. We have a lot of exciting projects underway and we’re looking forward to sharing our future plans with new visitors.”
