Take your time

Wow what a wonderful aquarium. Take your time and do not rush. The exhibits are well done with information and great animals. When in the Tropical forest don't forget to look up to see what is in the trees. I would spend no less than two hours and I could send a day with all there is to see.
Good for all ages

If you find yourself in Baltimore, visit the National Aquarium. It's lovely. The birds and rain forest area are very nice. The manta rays are so relaxing to watch. Everybody in our family enjoyed themselves.
Pricey but worth it.

Adults are $35 and infants are free but here is the catch - you cant bring the stroller in and have to carry your baby in carriers. They provide you a carrier if you need one but bring your own just in case. The wall mounted attractions were nice. Pay attention to the show times and tours, I regret not taking one. My brother in law did a dive there a few months ago and he had a great time, we got to see divers while we were there and it was nice to see it from that perspective.
Fun for the Family

The Baltimore Aquarium is a great place for families to go. They have some really cool fish on display. My personal favorite was the jellyfish exhibit. I would definitely recommend this attraction to families, but be sure to get there a little early because it can get really crowded.
Great aquarium with an awesome view!

We went to the Baltimore Aquarium over Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. The only down side is that it was very crowded which caused us to skip over a few of the tanks, but that is to be expected on a holiday weekend. The exhibits were beautifully put together and very educational. I also really enjoyed the open dolphin viewing that enabled us to sit and watch the dolphins while talking to the staff to get more information. The location is very convenient, as it is located near numerous restaurants, shopping, and other attractions right on the waterfront. The aquarium has some gorgeous views of the waterfront and numerous places where you can sit and enjoy them. The admission price was a little expensive, however, keep in mind that most zoos and aquariums are non-profits and rely heavily on memberships and ticket sales to stay open and provide for the animals. I really enjoyed the aquarium and would definitely visit again!
