National Aquarium - Imax Theater
This aquarium is perhaps the greatest attraction in Baltimore's celebrated Inner Harbor. The exhibits start small with samples of marine life from local waters, but visitors soon find themselves eye-to-eye with sharks, rays and other very large creatures. The simulated rainforest ecosystem is truly awe-inspiring. The regularly scheduled dolphin shows are very popular, especially with children.
I just went here this weekend with my 15 month old daughter. I was shocked that I was not allowed to bring in my stoller. I had to carry her because it was so crowded and I did not want her stepped on. I can see why they dont want strollers but reality is - people with small children need them so maybe they should limit the amount of people per allowed entry times to a certain amount to avoid crowds. In other words - you enter at 9am you exit at 10:30am and so on. I would rather pay more money and be able to enjoy it with my stoller and less crowds.
The dolphin show was wonderful - 4D theatre was pretty cool too. The huge waterfall was a nice entry. I can't really give a negative response because I did enjoy it but improvements could be made.
I recently visited the aquarium with my wife, daughter - 13yrs old, sons 7yrs old & 9 yrs old. The aquarium is interesting but older. My daughter was bored with the aquarium but enjoyed the dolphin show and 4-D movie. My sons liked the aquarium displays but grew bored because it was crowded enough that it was hard for them to see.
The 4-D movie was very fun. The movie didn't have very many scenes that took advantage of the 3-D glasses but the water spray, air spray, bubbles and poking seat more than made up for it. A word of warning for the 4-D movie - many of the children 5yrs and younger started crying because of the water, air and poking seats.
The aquarium price is also way to high for the experience. Especially for adults who are mostly there to bring their kids. If I ever went again, I would probably only pay to see the 4-D movie.
As a tourist: The exhibits are lovely and there is a good variety. I would have liked to have seen aquarium workers stationed near some of the exhibits to answer questions and give more information on the animals. the dolphin show was good. Then again, dolphins are great and fun to watch. The 4-D show has sprayers, bubbles and a few surprises during the show.
As a mom: I went with my 3-year-old and unless you have a child who is fish-crazy, I would suggest another attraction. The hallways are dark, the 4-D show is too intense for small children and fish can be boring. Personally, I rarely bring a stroller to an indoor attraction. The aquarium is not made for strollers or wheelchairs. There are elevators but, there are a lot of tight turns and many tourists. Moms should check the website before going.
I use to love going but now with a 3 year old it is kind of hard.They have escalators which my child is afraid of and you can not have a stroller on a escalator so it is impossible to use one and im sure not taking my 3 year old to the aquarium unless he is in a stroller.
I think the price is ridiculous, 20 something just for an adult is absurd and this is coming from a girl who has money. I have been to aquariums alot better then this one and they are cheaper, I think baltimore city is starting to think it is New York city
for the amount of money...to pay and the waiting line...is it really worth it...
I can't believe I can't take a stroller inside which is absurd...My children were 3, 2, and 1 last summer when we tried to take them...I refuse to carry the baby ...my little umbrella stroller is fine..
I visited with my 6 month old and my five year old, they made me ditch the stroller and check out a baby carrier (free) and lug around my kid on my back through different levels, not an experience that was too fun, if i had known that I would not have gone.
