Membership Has Its Perks

​We have all heard the saying, “Membership has its perks.” And this certainly is true at the Aquarium. But joining our team means a lot more than just what you get out of it.

We value each and every one of our members. We rely on membership support to be able to continue providing excellent care to the animals, excel in our educational programming, and have the resources to pursue vital research in marine conservation. It is because we are so thankful to those of you who choose to join us in these important endeavors, that we are excited to offer back special opportunities and gifts to say thank you. Below are some of the tangible benefits of purchasing a membership with the Virginia Aquarium, but we promise you that there are greater gifts than we can list here. If you are not a member already and would like to join, we have a variety of packages from which to choose and you can join easily and conveniently right online. So, be sure to read through all that we have to offer to our members and see that Membership does in fact have its perks.
