A quick thank you to the National Aquarium. Had a wonderful experience. I will continue to recommend my clients to them.
This is a very unique venue and we love playing there!!!!! The staff are very helpful and friendly
We’ve had the pleasure of working with The National Aquarium in Baltimore for over 20 years. The National Aquarium is a distinct wedding venue, in that there are a number of extraordinary areas that can be utilized to accommodate events of all different sizes and styles. Intimate weddings from 50 – 120 guests can choose from views of the Harbor, or dine in the Under Water Viewing Area that has a 12'x60' glass wall beneath the dolphin pool. Larger weddings can transform the Atrium of Pier 4 or utilize the seasonal tent that sits on Pier 3 at the water’s edge. Nowhere else in Baltimore will you be able to find as many unique options at one venue!
