Normally I wouldn’t do a review for a Maryland park or venue but this place was pretty awesome. Yesterday we took the boys to Port Discovery Children’s Museum in Baltimore, MD. I had heard good things about the museum and decided to take the kids since it was cold and windy outside.
Address: 35 Market Place Baltimore, MD 21202
When we walked in my oldest was in awe. The children’s museum is three levels of interactive exhibits, mystery adventures, water exhibit, tot trails and a three story urban tree house. There is something for every age and size. The museum is recommended for children under 10 years of age. The museum is very open so you can keep track of the kids while they are on different levels. They have a wristband system so your child can’t leave the museum with anyone but one of his/her parents. Also employees are available on every level equipped with radio equipment to help locate a lost parent or child.
The pictures don’t do the museum justice because there is so much the kids can do including playing grocery store, working on a farm, playing diner, story time and currently on the third level they have a Clifford the Big Red Dog exhibit.
I would highly recommend checking out the Port Discovery Children’s Museum. It was great for burning off some energy and the kids could be hands on with every exhibit. There were clean restrooms everywhere, strollers can easily maneuver the museum, an elevator for those who can’t do stairs, a place to put your jackets and lockers to stow away stuff that you don’t want to carry. Also if you park in the garage next to the museum Port Discovery validates your parking. Plan to spend at least 2-3 hours there because there is so much for the kids to do!
