    Did you know? No other aquariums in the world have hippos on display, and only one other aquarium in the United States has a Hammerhead Shark. Read more

    Bring your own food! They have a cafe but the food is expensive and not very good

    Pro tip: The Aquarium Cafe is crowded and expensive — eat at Bain's Deli next door instead. Make sure to get your hands stamped!

    This is an awesome place! The touch tanks were fun for the kids. The exhibits were fantastic, and the place very clean.

    Getting an annual pass is a good idea! Went 3 times so far with it and already saved money. It's great for kids (zone C is now a kids zone) and 4D spongebob movie is cute. I love the aquarium

    Amazing experience with the life under water..You can not only touch the sharks and sting rays but also swim with the sharks if you want to! Read more

    Check out the turtles

    Very kid friendly, lots of interactive exhibits and the window exhibits are eye level for toddlers. Arrive around 10, leave in time for nap.

    This place was great! My 4 year old twin boys and 3 year old niece loved it. The highlights are the shark tank and all the areas where you get to pet things (sting rays, sharks, jelly fish and more).

    Start in Zone D with the Hippos then work your way to Zone A. Don't miss feeding the Sting Rays....

    a little bit far, we can think

    There is a breastfeeding room! You don't have to nurse in the car beforehand!

    Super expensive for what it is.

    Mike Haney · August 18, 2011
  • Janet H.

    Do the 4D show-totally worth it!

    Complete waste of time and a ridiculous amount of money, make the trip to Baltimore to see a real aquarium.

    Keith Pachulski · July 19, 2014

    Not as long as it looks. But still pretty cool.

    Fund raiser. For MS. Very well put together. Donations for national multiple sclerosis society.

  • Darren M.

    Overpriced for the experience. Rude people and poor crowd control. Baltimore National Aquarium any day.

    Darren Meiser · July 28, 2013
  • Mandi V.

    If you want to avoid crowds, come during the week. Unless its summertime, then it's ALWAYS crowded.

    Ridiculously expensive... And the least impressive aquarium I've been to.

    Nice aquarium, often surly visitors with wild kids.

    Chris Marsh · July 4, 2012
  • Sarah L.

    Sit and stare at the sharks in the big tank for awhile.

    Sarah Larson · May 1, 2012
  • Rachel M.

    Did you know that you and your family can reserve a spot and snorkel in the shark tank? They don't advertise it but there are guided tours offered at the information desk.

    Rachel Mercer · February 13, 2012
  • Fabia R.

    Hippos like the far right corner . Many cute fotos.

    Fabia Rivera · December 28, 2011

  • Brad C.

    Not a lot to do for the little ones. Wait until the kids are at least 4.

    Brad Cooper · April 24, 2010
  • Josh M.

    Nice aquarium but not worth the money

    Josh Miller · January 5
  • Nikki F.

    Everything except the food. Eat before or after you go.

    Nikki Fox · November 7, 2014
  • Brandon C.

    Great kid area! Lots of areas to touch and play

    Brandon Cain · October 15, 2014
  • Stephen P.

    Was OK. Not worth the high price tag and not really worth the 1.5hr drive

    Stephen Park · August 11, 2014
  • Anthony C.

    When I went I was with a camp and there must had been at least 10 camps there, so it was extremely crowded. The overall experience was pretty good.

    Spring time? Go after 1 o'clock, after field trips go home.

    Julie Rhoads · May 23, 2014
  • Julie R.

    Their website said to arrive after one o'clock because of school field trips....listen to them! It was so much nicer after hundreds of kids left.

    Julie Rhoads · May 23, 2014

    Arrive before 12:30pm or after 2pm if you want to avoid the crowds.

    Katrina Schecter · March 29, 2014

    Hippos aren't there until April

    Pack a lunch.

    JMS · January 1, 2014

    Do Zone D first — the shark tunnel gets more crowded as the day goes on!

    Eric Andersen · December 30, 2013
  • Eric A.

    Nice decorations around the holidays!

    Eric Andersen · December 30, 2013
  • Eric A.

    Open daily 10-5, but plan to get here before 11:30 to avoid long lines for tickets

    Eric Andersen · December 30, 2013
  • Leonid M.

    One of just a few places open on the Christmas day (11am-3pm). And they they have a Scuba Santa!
