This "attraction" is ONLY for people who enjoy learning about and spending time watching sharks, dolphins, a nice selection of jellyfish, and a huge variety of fish. Sizes span from smaller than a quarter to as large as a human being. And fish appearances are from being as plain as a brown leaf to as colorful as a sparkling rainbow. I recommend exploring Baltimore's National Aquarium's website before visiting, so that you're familiar with what this amazing place is all about. Plan to spend at least four leisurely hours there, in order to fully experience everything this aquarium has to offer. Lovely music plays in the background of most exhibits, so I personally found the general environment to be calming and stress-reducing. And the more time you linger, the more relaxed you'll become. There's just something about gazing at all sorts of fish languidly swimming in spacious accommodations that soothes the soul. Most young children become bored quickly, so I suggest waiting until yours are old enough to enjoy spending hours walking and looking around. The café is kept as clean as possible, considering the large number of people eating there. If you like souvenirs, there are two small spots that sell some. But the main "museum shop" is enormous in size, selection and serious fun! Be sure to write down exact directions, because the surrounding area can be quite congested and confusing. And since the aquarium doesn't have it's own parking, look up the several lots/garages within walking distance. The entire Baltimore Harbor is also worth checking out, particularly for lunch or dinner. You're sure to have a memorial time.
