Make Your Next Event Amazing

Baltimore's Most Memorable Event Venue

The National Aquarium, with its breathtaking views of the Baltimore Inner Harbor and five levels of award-winning exhibits, provides a magical and memorable backdrop for your special occasion.

Whether outside or in, spacious locations are available for as few as five guests to as many as 3,000, making the Aquarium the ideal place for weddings, corporate events, meetings, team-building sessions, fundraising galas, holiday parties or any occasion!

A Greener Way to Celebrate

When you hold your special event at the National Aquarium, a portion of your fee supports conservation education programs. Hosting a green event has never been so elegant—or so easy! From compostable serving ware to sustainable menu selections, events at the National Aquarium are eco-friendly from start to finish.
