If you want to sit back and relax as you learn, then you can visit the Experience 4-D Immersion Theater. At this theater, you can watch different films that are both educational and fun. The movies shown are in 3-D and there are actually effects such as wind and mists. This will help to bring the movies alive, so that you can watch them and learn in a whole new way!
Of course, we can’t forget about the popular show! You can meet the Dolphins of the National Aquarium. Learn about each dolphin and their characteristics, as well as how dolphins live. In addition, you can watch the dolphins show off and perform tricks for you! Be careful if you do not want to get wet, as sitting in the first few rows could cause a dolphin’s splash to wet you and your family! If you do not want to get wet, it is recommended to sit further back rather than in the front.
Before you leave the National Aquarium, be sure to check out the gift shops. At the four different gift shops, you can buy souvenirs merchandise that represent the National Aquarium in Baltimore and your favorite sea animals. The souvenirs include apparel, jewelry, toys, books, and more!
