NEWPORT, Ore. -- The Oregon Coast Aquarium will honor veterans and active duty military personnel with free admission to an ocean of coastal and marine discovery on Veterans Day.

As always, family members who accompany them to the Aquarium are eligible for a 10 percent discount. Families of active duty military personnel are also eligible for the discount, even if the person serving is not present.

To receive free admission on Saturday, November 11, visitors must show military or veteran organization identification, discharge papers or other official military identification; families of deployed military personnel must show active duty identification.

The Aquarium is providing free admission, normally $22.95 for adults, as an offer of thanks: “We hope that this offer demonstrates our gratitude to those who serve and have served our county, as well as the families who support them,” said Aquarium President/CEO, Carrie Lewis.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium is located at 2820 S.E. Ferry Slip Rd. in Newport.
