FORT FISHER — To honor those who have served the nation, the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher will welcome military families with free admission on Saturday, Nov. 11, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The admission will be offered to veterans — active, reserve or retired of the U.S. military — and their dependents. 

“We are grateful for the service and sacrifice of these heroes,” Michael P. Remige, acting director of North Carolina Aquariums said in a press release.

The free admission extends to Pine Knoll Shores and Roanoke Island aquariums as well. All of the aquariums are interactive and on Saturday, staff will include patriotic salutes during activities.  

Reservations are still required for advanced admission and can be made here. Service members are asked to bring military ID cards for themselves and their family members who qualify for the complimentary admission.
