Admission price to NC aquariums is going up
It will cost more to visit North Carolina's three aquariums next year.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources is proposing increasing admission prices by about $3 likely beginning the first of March.
That means adults would then pay almost $11. Members of the military and seniors would pay just under $10 and children between 3 and 12 would pay almost $9.
An agency rule allows the increase to take place, but the admission price increases still need formal approval to become permanent. The aquariums are taking public comment through Jan. 9.
