The National Aquarium is in short wonderful. It features a walk-through tropical rainforest (no glass walls here) where birds fly freely, monkeys jump in the treetops, and creepy things crawl around. Inside, there are tanks featuring stingrays and puffins. Outside you'll find the seals. My family, from my two-year-old to my six-year-old, were fascinated, and we were there for hours. It is conveniently located on a pier in the inner harbor, and a short walk to just about any kind of food you'd like. Allow plenty of time for this one - you'll need it and likely come back again and again! This is a not-to-be-missed spot on your visit to Baltimore.

Each exhibit was very informational, with pictures of the different marine life so you could identify them. They also gave a little information on the different fish.
The aquarium also features a few gift shops and snack stops.

When we visited, there was a special exhibit on seahorses. These "fish" just facinate me. I love the fact that the males are the ones that carry the young and "give birth". There are so many sizes and colors!
As I've already mentioned, you just can't stay away from the sharks. They are such graceful, terrifying (to me anyway) creatures.
Don't forget the rainforest exhibit. If you're looking to stay cool, however, this isn't going to help you. It's like walking into a wet, sticky rainforest. But the creatures are worth a look.
We didn't have a whole lot of time, so we didn't see a lot of shows (like the dolphin show, which I hear is a must-see) and games and such. But there's something for everyone here, and plan to spend several hours exploring.
