The National Aquarium of WashingtonDC is the perfect place to take a young toddler. It is on the smaller size of the aquariums been that it is only one floor. When you first walking you see a bunch of little alligators. That separates all of the fish. The fish are in smaller size tank and are a bit higher up off the ground so for some children it is a little more difficult to see unless the parent pick them up. The really cool thing about this aquarium is that there are fish from all over the world from different preservations. The National Aquarium of Washington DC took samples of different fish and their habitats and put them in each tank. They even have one from the Potomac River. It is very interesting to see the differences between saltwater and freshwater fishes and habitats. One of the criticisms of this aquarium is that it is so small and it costs at least $10 to get in. But I do think that people know what they are getting into when they go there and the money goes to support the fish, habitats and the ocean, which are all great causes. There is also endless amounts of information on each fish and habitat as you go through the aquarium. There is also an interactive area for children with a lot of hands on manipulatives. And the gift shop offers a lot of fun souvenirs. Though some adults may have the criticism of getting bored by this one for aquarium, I believe it is the perfect place to take a young child especially on a cold day. They love the fish and will be entertained for hours! It is the perfect amount of entertainment for a young child to not be overwhelmed with and to learn and be excited about the ocean.
