Education helps to further these conservation efforts, which often start with the youngest among us. The National Aquarium is working to educate tomorrow's leaders on the importance of conservation today through field trips, student programs, volunteer opportunities, the Youth Ocean Conservation Summit and more. In addition, the organization works to educate the educators, with abundance resources for teachers, including workshops, orientations, and outreach programs. These outreach efforts include traveling programs, bringing the Aquarium to the classroom for interactive and engaging learning activities.
In order to have the best and most engaging experience at the National Aquarium, visitors can download the Aquarium App prior to arrival, which includes keeper times, maps and more. The Aquarium advises visiting prior to 11am or after 3pm most days for a more enjoyable experience with fewer crowds. Located in downtown Baltimore, the Aquarium is easily accessible from freeways and public transit. Public parking is available in close proximity, for a fee. For the optimum experience, it is recommended to review the calendar of events on the Aquarium's website prior to planning your visit. Visitor tips, also available online, help to ensure guests make the most of their visit.
In addition to the abundance of permanent exhibits on display to discover and dive into, the National Aquarium also feature a range of events to enhance every visit. From daily offerings like animal feedings and 4D Immersion films, to festivals and glittering gastronomic gatherings, there is something for kids, adults, students, teachers and everyone in between. The Aquarium also offers deals, half price nights, and special programming for special needs guests. For those seeking an even more in-depth aquarium experience, Immersion Tours take guests behind the scenes, get them the inside scoop, and show them the amazing animal care at the aquarium. Visitors can choose one of these three tours available on specific days and times throughout the month, and are advised to book in advance.
