National Aquarium – You can’t take a trip to the Inner Harbor without making a stop at our nation’s aquarium. But just in case you need a little convincing, this is one of the more unique aquariums we’ve visited. I love the way its modern design fits into the landscape. Inside, you’ll find a wide variety of sea life and even a rainforest. We loved seeing the dolphins, which we were informed will be moving to a warmer climate in a few months. See them while you still can!
Historic Ships of Baltimore – There are four ships in total, and we toured each one. See the floating lighthouse, a submarine the length of a football field, a sail battleship and a warship that fought in pearl harbor.
Babe Ruth’s Birthplace and Museum – This is a must-see for any baseball fan. We learned so much about the babe of baseball who got his start with the Baltimore Orioles. Follow the baseballs from Camden Yards to get there.
Maryland Science Center – A great experience for kids and adults alike. We took part in many interactive exhibits, saw evidence of dinosaurs in Maryland and took in a Planetarium show.
Fort McHenry – You would be remiss if after visiting Baltimore you did not make a stop here. Fort McHenry is an important piece of American History and it’s only a few minutes from the other attractions listed here, located at the entrance of the Inner Harbor. This is where during the war of 1812, our men successfully defended an attack from the British Navy and Francis Scott Key was inspired to write our National Anthem after seeing that our flag was unscathed after the battle.
Ripley’s Believe it or Not – If your family likes to play, this is a fun museum. This was our first Ripley’s museum visit and we enjoyed seeing the unusual exhibits and learning a few eccentricities.
