Crowded and poorly laid out
Sep 18, 2014 by: puccipuppy from New York City, New York
We visited the aquarium over labor day weekend. It was super crowded, but not entirely because of the holiday weekend. The aquarium was laid out with only one major walkway to navigate the space, which made it impossible for visitors to explore different areas to avoid crowds. The interior was unnecessarily dark and AC was insufficient. I wouldn't take my two year old back there anytime soon.

Great aquarium. One of the best I have been to... You can tell why they charge so much for admission.
Take your time

Wow what a wonderful aquarium. Take your time and do not rush. The exhibits are well done with information and great animals. When in the Tropical forest don't forget to look up to see what is in the trees. I would spend no less than two hours and I could send a day with all there is to see.
Good for all ages

If you find yourself in Baltimore, visit the National Aquarium. It's lovely. The birds and rain forest area are very nice. The manta rays are so relaxing to watch. Everybody in our family enjoyed themselves.
Pricey but worth it.

Adults are $35 and infants are free but here is the catch - you cant bring the stroller in and have to carry your baby in carriers. They provide you a carrier if you need one but bring your own just in case. The wall mounted attractions were nice. Pay attention to the show times and tours, I regret not taking one. My brother in law did a dive there a few months ago and he had a great time, we got to see divers while we were there and it was nice to see it from that perspective.
