This Aquarium offers one of the finest outings a family can enjoy. Varied, engaging, hands on and child accessible, this is an outstanding venue. If you have the time, pair it with a visit to the B&O Railroad Museum which offers the highest quality train museum in the country. Include lunch at the Thames Street Oyster House or the Irish Restaurant/pub on Thames Street and you have a fabulous outing.

I was in Baltimore for a business meeting, and finding the National Aquarium was a very pleasant surprise. There are many different exhibits on multiple levels and the visitor can see examples and explore different climates and ecosystems. It appears that the animals receive excellent care, and the pathways through the exhibits are well organized. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the National Aquarium.

The aquarium has grown so much! There is certainly something for everyone. It's pricey, so look for deals. I love the jellyfish exhibit!

I was impressed with how much they fit into what I thought was a tiny place! Well worth the entrance fee. The live reef and fish swimming with sharks was so cool. Top it off with shows, I will be back with our teenagers on our next visit to Baltimore!
