Published March 16, 2012

We are thrilled to share a very special announcement with you: we've launched the redesigned Aqua.org! The new website is now home for both National Aquarium, Baltimore, MD, and Washington, D.C., provides more intuitive navigation, easy-to-access ticketing, tons of beautiful photography, event calendars, and up-to-the-minute news and intriguing facts about our animals! Please take a look! We have added some really great features we think our community will enjoy! Take some time to explore the site (and believe us, there's a lot to explore!). Starting with the homepage, we've made the site more beautiful with amazing images of our animals as well as interesting facts! Our new Animals page gives you the opportunity to explore more of our animal collection in new and different ways. You can search by venue, color, geography, exhibit, and more! Then, once you get to a specific animal page, you can explore even further! Each animal has various photos, facts, and sometimes videos. Plus many have a note from the animal's Aquarium caretaker! We also want to highlight the new Trip Planner functionality--you can plan your trip from almost EVERY PAGE! When you click the "Add to Trip Planner" button throughout the website, your choices will be compiled into a full itinerary that is easy to read and organize. Plus, it's easy to print or email in preparation for your visit! There are TONS of other new features! Please visit and roam around. We hope you'll enjoy it!

Please take a look and let us know what you think! AQUA.ORG
