Best place ever

Best aquarium ever, especially with the new shark tank. We spend hours there and we bring every visitor we get. Get the family membership otherwise it is very expensive. But my guess is that it's the best aquarium in the country so it's definitely worth it.
FAMILY DAY GREAT

Anytime you are in the Baltimore area you should definitely make time to visit, especially if you have never been there. This was our second visit to the aquarium and we were excited to see the new Blacktip Reef exhibit which did not disappoint. The aquarium exhibits take place in 3 different buildings, one building is animals from Australia, another building houses their dolphins and jellyfish exhibits (one of our favorites) and the main building houses blacktip reef and the various tanks from different levels of the ocean. The main building levels take you up through various attractions and sea life until you reach the rain forest, then you make your way back down a oval walkway that takes you by a huge reef tank that contains fish of all shapes and sizes. Below that you come to the shark tank that contains many species of sharks swimming around you. We opted to visit on a Friday night after 5pm as it was only $12 per person for admission rather then the normal $34. We did not do the 4d movie as we had seen it the last time we visited. It was interesting to see the aquarium in the evening hours as it seems to take on a different persona.
Not worth the time or money.

This aquarium is not worth the time or money to see. Aquariums in Camden, NJ, and Long Beach, CA, are so worth the visit.
Worth the Visit

This is a great aquarium. Especially enjoyed the Blacktip Reef from various levels, Shark Alley, the dolphins, the Australian exhibit, and the jellyfish exhibit. It is well organized and easy to move through it. Luckily we went late in the afternoon and just missed all the school kids so it made our walkthrough a little more leisurely. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Baltimore.
