Expensive and crowded
The Baltimore Aquarium in concept is a wonder. You are promised travel to an Australian river gorge, descend through an Atlantic coral reef, explore a tropical rain forest, discover dolphins and sharks, and interact with animal experts. In practice, on a Sunday afternoon, the crowds are such that it is an exercise not unlike dodge ball. The idea of a lovely stroll through an educational display of aquatic life does not exist. You cannot get close to the displays. Unable to see anything, the children run, scream, cry and are uncontrollable. Much of the building is under repair. The escalators and elevators are dysfunctional and the aquarium help, no doubt frazzled by the crowds, are surly and almost rude. Save the thirty dollars and walk around the fish tanks at Petco.
