Kicking off July 11th, guests who enter the Aquarium after 5:00 pm will enjoy a special admission price of $18.12 on Friday evenings!

Our star-spangled nights will include themed scavenger hunts and animal encounters! Snacks and beverages, including beer and wine, will also be available for purchase. 

Also in celebration of the anniversary, we will be kicking off our fall line-up of the Marjorie Lynn Bank lecture series with a special panel titled “The Battle of Baltimore: How Our Harbor Helped Define America” on September 10th. The lecture will bring historians and authors together to discuss the significant role the Inner Harbor played in the War of 1812. 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s research vessel, the Okeanos Explorer, will also be docked on Pier 4 and open to visitors from September 10-16th!
