Where can you visit a rainforest or the Australian outback without boarding a plane? The National Aquarium, of course!

Since its opening in 1981, the National Aquarium has been a gem in the very heart of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, and generations of Maryland families have walked through their doors and shared in the wonders of the undersea world. Their want to inspire the conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures — and want to motivate  Marylanders to appreciate and protect the delicate habitats in their own backyards.
