The Baltimore Ravens have scored a spot in the Super Bowl. Tickets to the game will come at a price, but tickets to some main attractions in the team’s hometown are pretty affordable.

Visit Baltimore can grant you access to five of Baltimore’s best places for less than $50 per person – $49.95 for an adult and $39.95 for a child.

The deal is called “Harbor Pass,” and it offers entrance to the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center and Top of the World Observation Level. Harbor Pass also gets you into either the American Visionary Art Museum or Port Discovery Children’s Museum. To cap it off, you’ll get admission to Sports Legends at Camden Yards or the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture.

Here are some stops to make on your next trip:

  • The National Aquarium is a big draw. One of the most riveting exhibitions is Shark Alley. Big sharks, small sharks and strange sharks slowly circle you inside a ring-shaped 225,000-gallon tank. For a less sinister experience, head to Dolphin Discovery where you can watch these wondrous creatures feed, move around and interact with their trainers.
  • Make the transition from sharks to dinosaurs by heading to the Maryland Science Center. Here, you’ll encounter a T. rex and maybe even an Astrodon. The museum encourages visitors to touch a triceratops skull, and pick up a brush and unearth some bones. Marvel at the length of a dino leg bone and get comfy in a nest of dino eggs.
  • A visit to the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture is a must. According to museum staff, the compelling exhibits aim to show “how 200 years of slavery wrenched, and sometimes broke, the bonds of family and community among African Americans in Maryland.”
  • Survey the city and the Chesapeake Bay from the 27th floor of the World Trade Center, billed as the planet’s tallest pentagonal building.
