Baltimore Inner Harbor Museums
The Inner Harbor is rimmed with beloved museums. One of the leading favorites for locals and visitors alike is the National Aquarium, where you can see 20,000 different animals in award-winning habitats, including a tropical rainforest and an Australian river gorge.
Additionally, the National Aquarium offers a Show Your Badge discount for anyone participating in a conference in Baltimore. Anyone who shows a conference badge can receive $5 off admission at the National Aquarium ticket office when they purchase tickets. They are located in the heart of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and feature thousands of animals representing hundreds of species in award-winning habitats.
Interested in maritime history? Docked along the edges of the Inner Harbor are the Historic Ships In Baltimore’s floating museums. Take a tour of the U.S.S. Constellation, built in 1854 by the U.S. Navy and now holding court as the only surviving ship from the Civil War. Nearby, find three additional ships and a lighthouse that all detail marine experiences between the mid-1800s and the 1980s.
Love science? Across the harbor from the Aquarium sits the Maryland Science Center, where three floors of science-focused demonstrations thrill kids and grown-ups alike. Hands-on exhibits explore the solar system, the human body and more.
An especially family-friendly neighborhood, the Inner Harbor is home to the Port Discovery Children’s Museum, ranked among the nation’s best. This playful museum tucks a world of fun into a former fish market building. Let little ones explore the four-story SkyClimber, or play pretend on the life-sized cargo ship.
