BALTIMORE — The iconic glass roof at the National Aquarium is going to be replaced.
The new glass will be more energy efficient and have updated safety features.
It will also allow for improved temperature control in the Aquarium's Upland Tropical Rain Forest exhibit.
The National Aquarium says that exhibit will temporarily close on March 3 so that
they can begin replacing the 684 panes of glass in the exhibit's pyramid.
