Our 8 year old son is growing up with yearly visits to the National Aquarium. Besides the education factor, the FUN and stimulation of the WOW exhibits makes a difference in his life! Great staff who cares for the visitor and their animals! What a safe, clean, and FUN adventure at the Inner Harbor.

Our 80 year old father has become an unofficial herpetologist with a man-made pond at his home. He loves going to the National Aquarium to get ideas for adding to his animal collection and his back-yard exhibit! the grand-kids give him admission money to support the animal husbandry! ;) from frogs to turtles.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Animal exhibit is the main focus, the interaction with the staff and voluteer team with visitors should have a spot light too.

Every time I visit the National Aquarium with my family, we see a new animal, learn a new fact, enjoy a new interaction, and reinforce our collective believe that there is a greater power in our universe. The Aquarium is one of the few remaining public venues that can entertain and educate a group ranging from a toddler to a grandparent. We are so fortunate to have such a treasure in our City. Thank you for everything you have done for my family and our community.
