The National Aquarium, Baltimore – Photo Fridays

The National Aquarium is a  focal point of any visit to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.     Open daily at 10 a.m., fascinating exhibits entice every member of the family to engage with creatures of the deep.  And the not so deep.

From friendly dolphins and a variety of sharks to the newest giant sea turtle more than 20,000 animals reside within the walls of the spectacular facility.  Birds, amphibians, reptiles, mammals and fish are all represented in a welcoming and up-close environment.

Some exhibits are as local as the Maryland seashore.  Others are diverse and exotic – such as the Blacktip Reef, which replicates the Indo-Pacific reefs.
