One of Inner Harbor’s most popular attractions, the National Aquarium features an incredible 20,000 animals in award-winning habitats. Explore a tropical rainforest, the animals of the Australian Outback, an Atlantic coral reef, hundreds of jellyfish, 4D immersion films and their newest exhibit the "Living Seashore".
Other top reasons this is a great spot for families: Special tours give you a behind-the-scenes look at life in the aquarium. Care to toe a catwalk just inches from swimming sharks? Or perhaps you’re dreaming of a sleepover with a giant-green sea turtle.
