Baltimore Aquarium

Jumping jellyfish! Leaping lizards! Diving dolphins! Don't hide your enthusiasm for The National Aquarium in Baltimore, better known as the Baltimore Aquarium! Over 1.6 million visitors per year sure don't!

Opened in 1981, the Baltimore Aquarium is world-famous and undoubtedly Maryland's leading tourist attraction. Whether you're an educator, a student or simply a visitor wanting to glance at the magnificent exhibits, the Baltimore Aquarium in Inner Harbor has a lot to offer.

The mission of the Baltimore Aquarium is to "stimulate interest in, develop knowledge about, and inspire stewardship of aquatic environments." And that is precisely what it does. View a life-size model of a humpback whale, see the concepts of surviving through adaptation come to life and visit a coral reef!

Housing more than 16,000 cratures, the Baltimore Aquarium exhibits a variety of species in their naturalistic habitats. You'll find animals such as stingrays, sharks, sea turtles, bullfrogs, phytoplankton, monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and puffins. The list is perpetual so you have to check the exhibits out for yourself. You can also catch an up-close view of dolphins as they leap and tumble with the Baltimore Aquarium trainers in the live-action Dolphin Show.
