echo-lake-aquarium-and

Echo Pass

On July 10th, ECHO will open with summer hours –  Friday through Monday from 10am to 3pm. Timed tickets are required and available for two slots: 10 am – 12 pm or 1 – 3 pm for fast and contactless entry. More information can be found at https://www.echovermont.org/plan-your-visit/reopening-information/

If you are interested in checking out the ECHO pass, please contact ECHO at guestservices@echovermont.org or 802-864-1848.

If you would like to register yourself online, you can visit the ticketing website and use the code VTLib2020 to receive the discount.

In terms of pricing, the structure has changed for the summer hours: ages 0-17 are free and adults 18+ are $12. With the library discount, adults 18+ are $6 per person. Echo wants to make sure that people know they need to register for timed ticketing ahead of time as we have a limit on the number of people who can be in the building at one time.

Additionally, we know that in the past we haven’t allowed more than one card per library. For now, the card can be “checked out” as many times as people want. ECHO is happy to accommodate and welcome more than one family from your library on the same day. We are dedicated to staying accessible and supportive of all Vermonters.
