You know, for such a small place, this aquarium manages to display a lot. Be sure to look for the yellow cow fish by the entrance - one of them will follow your finger around if you place it against the glass! So much fun. That's almost worth the visit itself.
The aquarium is tucked away in the basement of a government building, so don't expect a grand entrance like its counterpart in Baltimore. However, it is still high caliber and offers a ton of cool displays to explore. You won't find many of the larger creatures and there are no dolphins, but you might not even miss them.

It is quite small. I wouldn't bother visiting the aquarium unless you really love fish, and have a lot of free time on your hands. If you want to see an aquarium I would recommend taking a train to Baltimore and going to the Baltimore aquarium which is much better

The smaller of the two national aquariums, features more than 1,500 animals including alligators, sharks, and turtles. Not as much to do as the one in Baltimore so go ahead and make the hour trek as there is a lot more to see. This one will only take up about an hour of your time to see all of the displays.

Beautiful and intimate exhibit space dedicated to our nation's National Marine Sanctuaries. Much less grandiose than it's sister aquarium in Baltimore, but perfect as a downtown DC attraction and ocean event venue!
