Activity Overview

Visitors can explore more than 10,000 aquatic animals, including sting rays, jelly fish, dolphins, and sharks at the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

Things to Do

The complex is divided into pier pavilions, each housing unique eco systems such as "Animal Planet Australia," "Atlantic Coral Reef," "Upland Tropical Rain Forest," etc.

Visitors can see waterfalls, sharks, stingrays, jellyfish, dolphins, native Atlantic fish, birds, crocodiles, & turtles.

Pier 4 Pavilion houses the large amphitheater where the Dolphin Show is performed and where you're likely to get splashed if you sit in the lower seating rows!!

The 4-D Immersion Theater is located in the Glass Pavilion, also home to Animal Planet Australia. The 4-D Immersion Show allows visitors to experience sights, sounds, smells and touch while watching a fascinating film about wildlife—-extremely well done and worth the time.

Also in Pavilion 4, take a minute to see "Jellies Invasion:Oceans Out of Balance."

Baltimore National Aquarium Insider Tips

  • Starting every morning at 9 am, a special meet-and-greet lets you get up close with a new best bird or lizard buddy. Check out the schedule at the digital message boards in the Aquarium and on the back of the guide map.
  • The least crowded times to visit are before 11am and after 3pm, and in the fall and winter. Summer Weekends get very crowded. You should purchase timed tickets online if you visit during peak times.
  • The Fridays After Five program held November to March offers basic Aquarium admission tickets are $8.00 for entry at 5:00pm or later. Fees may apply for special exhibits and shows.
  • If you have little ones, be sure to bring an infant carrier or borrow one of the aquarium'­s free backpacks since strollers are not allowed in the aquarium.
  • The 30 minute dolphin show is fun and worth the extra $3 admission.
