How to get FREE membership to the South Carolina Aquarium

If you have a Charleston County Public Library card, you could get free membership to the South Carolina Aquarium! CCPL and the Aquarium recently teamed up to help you come visit. Right now you can check out a week-long membership to the Aquarium at any Charleston County Public Library location. As long as you’re a library card holder, you can ask for it at checkout or get them from the CCPL website here. Ten memberships will be available and if all of them are currently in use, you can put your name on a waiting list to get it next time around.

The membership is good for two adults and up to eight children (as long as they’re all from the same household). They last for just one week, so make sure you use them while you have them!


The South Carolina Aquarium is Charleston’s No. 1 family attraction. It features thousands of aquatic animals from river otters and sharks to loggerhead sea turtles and fish in more than 60 exhibits representing the rich biodiversity of South Carolina from the mountains to the sea. The Aquarium is dedicated to promoting education and conservation. It also presents sweeping views of the Charleston harbor along with interactive exhibits and programs for visitors of all ages. Normal business hours are daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
