The National Aquarium, located in the city’s Inner Harbor, is a mesmerizing marine sanctuary that captivates visitors with its diverse array of aquatic life. This iconic institution is not just an aquarium but an educational hub and symbol of Baltimore’s maritime heritage. It is less than a mile walk from the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor, right down West Pratt Street.

Upon entering the aquarium, you will be transported into a world teeming with life from the depths of the ocean to the shores of Maryland. Exhibits showcase everything from colorful tropical fish to graceful stingrays and playful dolphins to majestic sharks.

From 5:30 to 9:30 pm on October 23rd, #TWS2024 attendees will have exclusive access to the National Aquarium. The last entrance is at 8 pm. Attendees will be able to access the main Blue Wonders exhibit, the Living Seashore Touch Experience, and the Marine Mammal Pavilion. Access to other exhibits will be restricted and the Marine Mammal Pavilion closes at 8:30 pm. So, after a busy week of conference activities, join us as we slow down for a minute and stroll through the National Aquarium. We can’t wait to see you.
