"National Aquarium" National Aquarium Tip by SassyCycler

National Aquarium, Baltimore: 38 reviews and 58 photos


The Aquarium, easily found because it's so huge, is newly renovated and pretty remarkable looking. Lines for admittance are long and move slowly. (The day we were there only had 2 windows open even though there were close to 60 people in line waiting.) Tickets are timed entry so it sort of helps to keep the crowds down. The museum is small, relative to many other aquariums I've been to. Still, it's something educational and exciting for everyone.

Try to get into an earlier entry time for the dolphin show. The day we were there, the last show was 6PM.

Tip: If you are a member of AAA buy tickets in advance to get the discount. Discount will not be given at the ticket window.

Address: 501 E. Pratt Street
Directions: Again, it's huge. You can't miss it.
