National Natural treasure
Dec 19, 2014 by: Jack L from Saint Jo
Reasonable location in Baltimore, near other attractions, to make a fun day of the visit. Great collection of aquatic animals in pleasant displays to observe their size, patterns, and actions. Bonus is the tropical rain forest display with the colorful and attractive birds.
A must when in Baltimore

We had an absolutely wonderful time visiting the Aquarium and recommend it to all ages. It really is more than a regular aquarium with its rain forest and Australia exhibit. The staff who were located throughout the exhibits were wonderful with their knowledge of not only the exhibits in general but facts about the specific inhabitance.
Make sure to engage with the docents, they are fantastic

I have been to several excellent aquariums. What impressed me the most about this one was the docents. There were many docents spread out throughout the aquarium, and each one was extremely knowledgeable. Every time I stopped to listen to one of them, or asked a question, I learned several new things. You could easily just walk through this place and enjoy it, but you'll miss a ton of things if you don't take the time to let the docents point out the hidden treasures all around you.
Worth the Wait

You might have to wait in line to gain admittance, but it is definitely worth the wait. This is a great and educational way to spend a day either alone or with a family. Well laid out and accessible in every way.

Went with family and had a blast. All the exhibits were very beautiful and informative. We had our 6 week old baby with us and unfortunately he won't remember the experience but his father and I loved it. Hopefully we'll get the opportunity to take him again when he is older. This was a wonderful experience during our short trip to the city!
