The Aquarium began as a revitialization project for the Inner Harbor area and, through a bond referendum, won the necessary votes to begin construction. Opening in 1978, it was later confered with the title "The National Aquarium" by the U.S. Senate in 1979.

There are over one million gallons of water used and 115,000 square feet of exhibit space including the Dolphin Theater.
