The National Aquarium is in the heart of the Inner Harbor and dramatizes the Baltimore skyline. The Aquarium opened 40 years ago in 1981 during the Baltimore City Inner Harbor’s redevelopment. It is ranked one of the top three aquariums in the U.S. and is one of the most visited attractions in Maryland.
The Aquarium focuses on promoting conservation of aquatic treasures, and they have a “vision to change the way humanity cares for our ocean planet.” Please think about donating to the aquarium’s nonprofit organization.
