City residents can visit aquarium for free 

San Franciscans can visit the Aquarium of the Bay for free this week as the site celebrates its transition to a nonprofit.

The aquarium, which is located near Pier 39 on the northern waterfront, became a nonprofit in June 2009 when it was acquired by the Bay Institute.

Starting Monday and continuing through Thursday, residents of The City can provide valid ID and gain admission free of charge.

"While we attract visitors from around the world, Aquarium of the Bay is truly a locals’ Aquarium,” John Frawley, president and CEO of The Bay Institute, said in a statement. “Until they visit the Aquarium, most San Franciscans are unaware of just how many different types of animals we have living in the San Francisco Bay and just outside the Golden Gate.”
