  • Voted Best Attraction and Best Place to take Kids by City Paper Readers for Best of Baltimore 2011
  • This aquarium is 4 stories, and has periodic specials on admission. There are lots of different tanks full of interesting sea life, they have a dolphin show and even a 4-D movie.
  • Dolphins are beautiful and smart but not meant to be captivated and used as a show.
  • Great shark tank and dolphin exhibition
  • Great for kids!!
  • They don't do dolphin shows anymore (yay happy dolphins!) so the stadium is a great place to relax during your trip. Just sit and watch the dolphins play with soccer balls
  • Hands down the best aquarium I've ever been to. The jellyfish exhibit is fantastic and I loved the dolphin show! The staff is awesome here and the exhibits are so realistic! I never wants to leave.
  • Buy the Baltimore Harbor pass for access here, the Maryland Science Center, Top of the World Observation level, plus five other tourist hot spots . You will save 20% over the general ticket prices!
