Educator Pass

We at Via Aquarium recognize the important role that educators have in our community and would like help support their efforts. While it is our policy to give educators a $2 discount off their admission ticket, we would like to further enhance our policy for educators within a 90 mile radius. Our Teacher Pass gives Capital Region educators free admission for 365 days from approval, those who are card carrying educators within a 90 mile radius are welcome to apply. This range is extended if you reserve a field trip with us.

Pre-schools: At this time we only allow at most 2 teachers passes to be used per group.

Administrator Pass

Like our Teacher Pass, our Administrator Pass gives Capital Region Administrators free admission for 365 days from approval, those who are card carrying Capital Region Administrators are welcome to apply.

This application is for Superintendents, Principals, Headmasters, Deans, and select School Boards



A visit to the Aquarium is your students’ passport to discovering the world’s aquatic biodiversity. With thousands of creatures on display, a visit to Via Aquarium will engage your students’ senses. In addition to the spectacular view from the underwater tunnel, children can get involved at the interactive touch tank or our augmented reality sandbox. With so much to see and experience, you will take learning beyond the classroom and into a new underwater world.

Booking a trip will automatically qualify you for a Teacher Pas regardless of distance.
