The National Aquarium is a non-profit public aquarium located at 501 East Pratt Street on Pier 3 in the Inner Harbor area of downtown Baltimore, Maryland in the United States.
Although the Aquarium does not operate its own parking facility, we have two official parking partners nearby. Tickets pulled from both Lockwood Place & the LAZ Inner Harbor Garage, can validate for a discount to Aquarium guests. Aquarium members receive an even bigger discount.
Please note that there is an early-bird parking discount for those who park in either of these garages before 9 am, Monday through Friday. If you arrive before this time, do not validate your parking ticket at the Aquarium. In addition, that will override the early-bird parking cost.
All parking garages provide accessible parking spaces. Also, on-street parking is available with ADA-compliant meters.
Tour Buses and Motorcoaches
In addition, Buses and motorcoaches of scheduled groups may use Gunther Circle, located in front of the Aquarium off Pratt and Gay Streets, for drop-off and pick-up. Access for up to 10 minutes.
Alternative loading and unloading locations for buses and motorcoaches in the Inner Harbor. Key Highway at the Maryland Science Center (10-minute staging), and the northbound lane of Light Street. The Science Center and Harborplace have no staging
