BALTIMORE (AP) — The National Aquarium in Baltimore is drawing millions of out-of-state dollars into Baltimore.
That’s according to a new economic impact report.
The report to be released Wednesday estimates that the aquarium has an economic impact of nearly $320 million in the Baltimore-Washington region.
The Baltimore Sun reports the aquarium commissioned the report, which is being released as it prepares to seek a capital grant from the state to help renovate one of its main exhibits.
The report found the aquarium is the city’s top paid tourist attraction, accounting for nearly $18 million in revenues for the city and state.
It found most visitors said they came from out-of-state and the aquarium was the reason.
