Greatly enjoyed this experience with much to look at and see. Was in my estimation expensive though but wish we had more time to spend there.

This is a great place to spend a few hours. There is a large reef exhibit in the middle when you walk in which was by far my favorite part. It contained small sharks, rays, puffer fish, a wide variety of other colorful fish and A HUGE turtle. It was really fun to watch all of the different sea life. After I left this area, I saw a bunch of other neat exhibits that contained lots of different fish and wildlife.
Your Underwater Viewing Adventure Awaits!

Baltimore's Inner Harbor is a great place to visit any time of year. If you've not yet gone to the National Aquarium - why are you waiting? Exhibits to delight kids of all ages: from the Rain Forest to seeing a 'real' Nemo to those ever-intelligent Dolphins and of course, those wicked sharks. You won't be disappointed with the sights and you'll learn some things, too!
Good, but they squeeze every penny out of you

We enjoyed our visit to the Aquarium. You should plan on spending several hours there. However, it left a somewhat sour taste in our mouths. As everyone has said, the admission is very steep to begin with. Then they wouldn't honor their Maryland Mornings discount because "it's a holiday" (Presidents Day, no mention of this exception on their website). As soon as you walk in they insist on taking a family photo, which they later offer for over $20. Then you have to pay $3.00 for each coat checked. (Tip: Bring a large bag in which to stuff all your gear. Then you'll only pay for one item). This is all before you begin your visit. The exhibitions themselves are impressive. Everyone enjoyed themselves, from young children to grandparents. It's a shame that we left feeling somewhat exploited.

Spent three hours wandering and exploring. Had a great time--beautiful place to spend quality time. Did the Sharks Behind the Scenes Tour--Alan--you are very knowledgeable and funny to boot! Thanks for a great tour and day!
