In comparison to our local aquarium (Boston), we were absolutely blown away. This aquarium offers such a great variety of aquarium animals. We specially loved the 3-legged turtle. We had a great visit there!

Our visit to the aquarium was so much fun. We enjoyed the dolphin experience and especially liked the interactive touch-tanks where you can touch jelly fish, crabs, and stingrays. The Blacktip Reef was equally fascinating with sharks, a large turtle, and huge stingray. We really enjoyed the jellyfish exhibits, seahorses, and colorful fish. I highly recommend visiting, really great experience.

My family and I have visited several aquariums and the National Aquarium in Baltimore is the best. Two different buildings, both full things to see. From the fish native to Maryland and the East coast to the fish and reptiles of Australia. A little expensive but worth it if you like marine life.

It's a fun place to visit with little kids. It's not the cheapest place to visit so it might be worthwhile to look into getting a membership pass if you are planning to visit more than once a year. Also, it can get very crowded inside so make sure you have enough eyes to watch over the kids.

This is worth the money and great for the whole family. My two young children both love it, especially the dolphin show. We went two days in a row and they eventually decided to try the touch tanks. Lots to see for both adults and children. I could stand at the reef exhibit when you first walk in for hours and watch the rays, turtle, and fish! If you plan to take your whole family and/or go more than once a membership is the way to go. You even get discounted parking.
