Give the Gift of Experience

National Aquarium tickets will provide loved ones an unforgettable experience. Each general admission gift ticket provides visitors access to dozens of unique aquatic habitats—from a northern Australian river gorge to an Indo-Pacific reef to a tropical rain forest—all interconnected by the binding force of water.

National Aquarium Gift Shops

Take the treasures of the aquatic world home with gifts from the National Aquarium Gift Shop. The on-site shop located in the Pier 3 building offers souvenirs, clothing, jewelry, housewares, toys, books and more that make great gifts for family and friends of all ages. A new online gift shop also carries exclusive designs featuring sea turtles, jellies, sharks and more.

The National Aquarium is pleased to carry products created by Made in Baltimore members in the on-site gift shop, thanks to a new partnership with the national retail operator Event Network. The partnership is an opportunity to discover local makers who prioritize the protection and preservation of the planet through their ethically and sustainably sourced manufacturing while bolstering the local economy.

"We are delighted to bring together these partners and showcase the best of Baltimore to Aquarium guests," said Jenny Hamilton, Director of Community Partnership Strategy for the National Aquarium. "Not only will our guests be able to bring home one-of-a-kind souvenirs that tell the story of Baltimore's talented artisans, they'll feel good knowing they're helping Baltimore's small businesses grow and thrive."


Making a donation to the National Aquarium in a loved one's name is an impactful way to honor family and friends while supporting the Aquarium's mission to continue to inspire conservation of the world's aquatic treasures.
