Baltimore Museum of Industry
The Baltimore Museum of Industry relies heavily on support from the community to provide the award wining school programming to over 70,000 children from 426 schools a year, to sustain the vast collection and to open the museum to the public on a daily basis.
Support comes from a variety of sources in the Baltimore region and comes in many forms. BMI is the recipient of grants from the state of Maryland, the city of Baltimore and from several of the surrounding counties. Some of the grants are to fund specific programs but most underwrite general operations of the museum.
The National Aquarium is a nonprofit aquatic education and conservation organization with two locations and one mission: to inspire conservation of the world's aquatic treasures.
In 2003, separate aquariums in Baltimore, MD, and Washington, DC, joined as one "National Aquarium." The National Aquarium venues together hold living collections that include more than 16,000 animals from more than 660 species of fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals living in award-winning, naturalistic habitats.
