Are you a federal worker with unexpected time on your hands? The Florida Aquarium is offering free admission to all government employees and a guest until the U.S. government shutdown ends.
The offer is available for all federal employees - even those furloughed by the shutdown and any other military and civilian employees still on the job.
"The government shutdown is impacting many of the residents and families in our community," said Thom Stork, president of The Florida Aquarium. "We are doing our part to try and make the situation a little bit easier for those affected."
Any federal employee will receive one free admission for themselves and one guest by presenting their federal ID card at the Aquarium ticket window.
The Aquarium is at 701 Channelside Drive in downtown Tampa. (813) 273-4000; flaquarium.org.
