Tiny Aquarium, Soon to Close

Flag review

Tips for Families

This aquarium will close on September 30, 2013, and relocating its marine life and many of its staff members to the other National Aquarium in Baltimore. Get there while you still can! I haven't been to the Baltimore location yet, but if you're headed from DC to the Northeast, the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ is excellent and well worth a visit.
