November 18th, 2014 by Lauren Keyes

animals-atlanticjelly-header-web What: National Aquarium

Where: 501 E Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21202

When: Open Dailey (Hours Vary)

If you’re here in Baltimore, you can’t miss out on the National Aquarium, where the mystery of beautiful underwater life is revealed. While some people may  say, “Once you’ve seen one aquarium, you’ve seen them all”, the Baltimore National Museum is especially worth seeing. Its exhibits include sea creatures from all over the world, and the museum works hard to help preserve our oceans and the species that inhabit them, which are increasingly disappearing as our environment changes. Located in the heart of Baltimore’s inner harbor, you can make a day, or even two, out of a day at the aquarium and all the fun things the harbor has to offer! Find out more here!
