So I am conflicted on how to rate the Aquarium. On the one hand it is very nice with some cool exhibits. However, it is almost always packed, which can make it difficult to appreciate some of the exhibits or get to read the signs. It is also very expensive ($30+/person), and you really should buy your tickets in advance online to ensure you can get in when you want. If the entrance were $20 I would consider it an awesome location, but at the 30+ it starts to feel overpriced.

Great for families with kids, or anyone with at least a passing interest in critters from under this sea, the National Aquarium is one of the best places to spend a lazy afternoon in Baltimore. It's nonprofit and educational. Another pro: The aquarium is set gorgeously on the waterfront, if you want to take a walk afterward. Con: You have to wonder why they have performing dolphin shows -- so cruel, haven't they seen "The Cove"?

As much as I love the Monterey Aquarium and all they do for conservation, it really - in my book - cannot hold a candle to the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Beautiful architecture, stunning exhibits and a world class walk-through rainforest make this one of the most entertaining venues in Baltimore, and one of the best aquaria in the U.S. Truly a great display of ocean wonders!

There's a lot to see in this massive aquarium, but boy is it tedious to get in! You have to reserve a specific entrance time and then stand in line to get your tickets before standing in another line to get in. The location is central to a lot of shops and food, which is nice, but if you need to find parking that can be a challenge unless you're willing to pay.
Once in, you can go explore the auk exhibit (where the puffins are), enjoy the dolphin show, and experience the 4D film. You should definitely get tickets for the show! It's pretty entertaining and surprising. Plan to spend at least 2-3 hours here.

The best aquarium! Filled with every kind of tail and fin under the sea. Plus it even has a rooftop tropical forrest. The best part? A 13-foot-deep fabricated reef in a 335,000-gallon exhibit. Vistors can walk along side the clear walls and see more than 500 exotic fish. The tank gets deeper as you walk through with cool deep water sharks at the bottom.

National Aquarium in Baltimore is a great Aquarium that specializes in the Chesapeake Bay watershed and the surrounding area. Disability Access is available and disability parking is tough because of located on the wharf. You will need about 2 to 3 hours to visit.
