My teenage daughters and I had a great experience at the aquarium. From our first encounter with the employees - the ticket receptionist and photographer - they were exceptionally nice, helpful and informative. It continued from there with all of the workers. The displays were clean and well maintained. The information placards on the displays were original and not the run-of-the-mill facts. We specially like the 'open-door' dolphin exhibit. It was educational and nice to see the dolphins be more free-spirited, instead of running them through a 'dog-and-pony' show.
Awesome and worth the money

I went with my wife and we are spellbound. It is a must go place in Baltimore. They do give a discount for parking but it is valid only if you park in a public parking. Unknowing of this fact I parked in a private parking space which cost me around $28 .
Pricey and crowded

Even on a mid-week day with school in session it was so crowded that it was difficult to enjoy many of the exhibits with fighting through hoards of unruley kids with absentee parents (somewhere?). What we did see was really pretty amazing and the lay-out is really well designed and professional. It's about $35 a head so you have to really like exotic fish and marine mammals to make this a decent value. My 12 year old couldn't wait to leave!

The aquarium is nice, large and well maintained with lots of interesting animals. The kids enjoyed it tremendously. Be aware that when purchasing tickets, you must specify a time - you can get inside at or after that time only, not before, so it might be easier to purchase tickets to an earlier time that later, so you won't have to wait... Not cheap, but good value for your money.
Beautiful and interesting

I love taking out of town guests to the Baltimore Aquarium, as it gives me an excuse to go! The new renovations look great! It is fantastic for kids and families. The reef exhibit is fascinating. I could stay in the rainforest all day! They have a bird that is the loudest documented in the worl, and you can tell!
