The National Aquarium delivers meaningful experiences through its living collection of more than 17,000 animals from more than 750 species of fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles, marine mammals and sharks, as well as through exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences like sleepovers and tours, science-based education programs and hands-on experiences in the field.

I can't imagine NOT enjoying a visit to the aquarium. There are always new exhibits and I see things I've missed each time I go. There are combo tickets available if you're traveling on a budget. Advance purchase saves waiting in line. No matter how many times I've visited I enjoy being there as if it's my first visit.

The aquarium is expensive, but worth it. Be sure to pick up a map and find out the schedule for special events, e.g., dolphin training. There are many volunteer guides, talk to them, they know so much.
