Celebrate Women at the National Aquarium
Moms need a break, at least once in a while. Each week we'll be bringing mothers suggestions of things to do and places to go to help them unwind.
What's more appropriate for a mom than spending an evening to celebrate the women who have made Maryland great? On Fri., March 4, the National Aquarium in Baltimore caps off its five-month Cultural Series with an exhibit dedicated to the grand ladies of historic Maryland. The exhibit and series wrap up with an evening of song and dance.
The Women’s History exhibit and activities run from 5–9 p.m. That leaves many hours to take in the rest of the Aquarium.
- The Aquarium Exhibit, Jellies Invasion: Oceans Out of Balance. See a behind-the-scenes tour of the exhibit on the website.
- 4-D Immersion Theater. Now playing: Planet Earth—From Pole to Pole 4-D Experience and Dora & Diego's 4-D Adventure—Catch That Robot Butterfly! See the trailers.
- Animal Planet Australia, Wild Extremes. Hear tales of survival in the extreme environment crocs, flying foxes, lizards and lorikeets call home. Here’s a preview.
- Dolphin Show, Our Ocean Planet. Here’s a preview.
