People tend to check in during these times:
National Aquarium is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures.
Tickets are kinda pricey, but worth it for a fun day and there is a lot to see. Make sure to stick around for a dolphin show and stop at a nearby restaurant on the harbor for lunch
Jellyfish exhibit is a showstopper, yet easy to overlook with so much other fish candy at the Aquarium. Only mystery is rain forest. Get there early or come late to avoid the throngs of people.
Great place to visit on a rainy day, when is not that busy. This aquarium is exactly the same with the one in Barcelona, excepting the dolphin encounter, which you really have to see.
I used to come here as a kid. Admission is expensive, but we always had a good time. Finally saw the new Australia exhibit and was not very impressed. The regular part of the aquarium is awesome, tho
If you have a family of 4 it makes sense to just purchase a membership as it can be covered just by visiting the aquarium 2.5x! Sure you can catch a special deal but it's not worth the huge crowds
Great place, part of the National Aquarium of Baltimore. Calming watching the animals swim. There is a computer example of the species, giving you pictures and details. The Shark Shop is also in here.
Hands down the best aquarium I've ever been to. The jellyfish exhibit is fantastic and I loved the dolphin show! The staff is awesome here and the exhibits are so realistic! I never wants to leave.
The National Aquarium in Baltimore is a wonderful place to visit. However, it does get crowded, so if you can, go on off-hours or weekdays instead of weekends...
Get there earlier if you have younger kids. Entrance into the Aquarium is staggered by times of entry so if you want to avoid needing to kill time in Inner Harbour, get there early! Also, the dolphin
Pros: Superb dolphin show, souvenir shop is good, gigantic skeleton of God-knows-what-osaurus Cons: The 4D show has nice effects but is way too short (I watched the Seasons one, not sure abt others)
Make sure to grab a map, the aquarium is very large and it is easy to miss some exhibits. Also, check for the times of the dolphin show when you first get there so you don't miss it!
They feed the sting rays at 10:30am. Best place to view is below the ground floor in the underwater viewing area. Ask a guide how to get there. Let everyone else crowd around on ground floor!
Awesome aquarium, really cool look. It does get REALLY crowded though, nothing is less fun than trying to observe the majesty of the jellyfish with a million kids screaming in some hellish unison.
Like most aquariums, this is very exiting in the beginning, however toward the end of the exhibits, things get a little dull. The jellyfish and the dolphin show are very interesting. Rainforest- no.
GREAT PLACE, GET THERE EARLY, THERE IS LOTS TO DO.......TAKE YOUR TIME IN THE AQUARIUM AND BRING A LITTLE PATIENCE, OTHER PPL THERE WERE EXTREMELY RUDE, OTHER THAN THAT, GREAT PLACE!!!!!
Always enjoy coming here. Check sites for coupons. Love watching the beautiful sea life but gets crowded n difficult at times but worth it but bring your patience w lines.
There are a lot of kids running around... All the time. Most of the time without parental supervision. But the exhibits are great, I love the jellyfish and sharks.
The Polar Express takes the Harbor Friday November 18, 5pm - 9pm! Join the National Aquarium in Baltimore for a special screening of Polar Express, hot cocoa, cookies, and more! $8 admission after 5pm
This is a must-see in Baltimore! From sting rays to penguins, this aquarium has it all! Be sure to sign up for newsletters for special discounts and events.
This place is amazing. I haven't been there since i was a kid. I loved the 4-D thearter. Calypso, the 3-legged Sea Turtle i loved seeing everything there.
One of, if not the, best aquarium I've ever been too. Loved the jellyfish exhibit. Try to go early in the morning on a weekday to avoid the crowds
The aquarium does NOT allow strollers do don't depend on one to schlep your kids and stuff around. They do lend out pretty decent baby carriers if you don't own one.
The Dolphin Show is no more. Haven't been here in a while so it was an unpleasant surprise as you could imagine. Though you can still see them which was nice.
The National Aquarium in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. A 15-20 minute walk from the hotel. Tickets are $25, open 9am - 5pm. Don't miss the dolphin show!
Very immersive and well presented venue for seeing all types of sea life. The exhibit route is arranged to move you around the museum in an organized fashion.
Personnel and dolphin trainers hang out to answer any and all questions you may have! Definitely better than just watching the show and then having to leave for them to get ready for the next show!
Lovely Aquarium; recently spent a day here with my fiancé. So many beautiful fish to admire; include sharks. Especially enjoyed the dolphin shows. Check at the entrance for when the displays are on
Fishes! Sharks! Dolphins! Its a little pricey but its worth it. One of the best aquariums I've been to. Better than The Boston Aquarium even!
During spring break, go early to get your tickets and entry time. Our entry time was 2 hours from when we purchased our ticket at the window.
The dolphin show has been taken away, no extra fee to go sit in the arena! They still do "shows" but everyone can go in and you can just chill in the amphitheatre and watch the dolphins play!
They don't do dolphin shows anymore (yay happy dolphins!) so the stadium is a great place to relax during your trip. Just sit and watch the dolphins play with soccer balls
The coral reef exhibit is breath-taking and you might see the large fish having a race.
Go early, staff has all the information too! if not, they find the answer for you! Really enjoy Level 3 in the main aquarium building.
Skip the cafe. It looks great online and in the video, but our food was dried out, old, and cold. The only thing we had worth the price was the crab soup. Cold but good. 3.00 water & 4.00 gatorade
You are invited on an extraordinary adventure to the North Pole this holiday season on THE POLAR EXPRESS! A cold winter’s journey that’s sure to warm your heart and make you believe.
Expensive but worth it. Shark tanks are awesome and jelly fish tanks will amaze you. Great place for kids of all ages.
Going on a discount day or when the yankees/redsox are in town means it'll be really crowded. But it's a great aquarium with a lot to see and do. The rain forest is gorgeous!
The line to get in is incredibly long! buy the tickets online and collect them at will kiosk! You'll save a lot of time.
One of the best museums I've ever been to in my entire life. And I've been to a lot.
Buy your tickets ahead of time to get a time to enter. We waited over 2 hours to get in but still had a great time.
Check out the "Fridays After Five" promo in the winter months. Discounted ticket rate and less crowded = win win.
Go after 5PM on Fridays for the cheapest tickets. Aquarium stays open til 9:30
