National Aquarium

Baltimore, Maryland
Let the National Aquarium Be Your "Something Blue."

Tie the knot against a stunning harbor backdrop, and enjoy a strolling cocktail reception through our award-winning exhibits.


Say “I do” in our underwater viewing area. There, our playful Atlantic bottlenose dolphins will make your ceremony one to remember.

Invite your guests to explore the Indo-Pacific in Blacktip Reef, explore shark territory in Shark Alley. In fact, get up close with everything from puffins to a giant Pacific octopus.

Or, plan a reception in the Pier 4 Atrium. Imagine dinner and dancing under the lovely jellies sculpture.

The Harbor View Room and Harbor Overlook offer spectacular views through floor-to-ceiling windows, while the harbor-side tent brings the celebration outdoors for perfect scenery.


Partial and full Aquarium rental options are available, along with exclusive caterers. As one of Baltimore's most unique wedding venues, National Aquarium’s indoor spaces host between 25 and 200 seated guests. It allows from 50 and 1,400 guests for reception-style events.

The National Aquarium offers an ocean of possibilities!
