  • We enjoyed the museum but it is geared toward children. We watched the IMAX movie on engineering and it was very good. Informative and inspiring. Also saw the planetarium show and that was good too. G...  more »

  • My son loves this place and insisted on visiting twice during our stay in Baltimore. It would be nice if the second and third floors had a few more exhibits and experiments in some of the emptier rooms, but the Newtons area downstairs kept us entertained for an hour. Great museum for my 7 year old.
  • My girl loves the science center. We have a membership and have been 3 times this year. The SciLab is especially fun.
  • Brought my kids here, we did not enjoy it so much. The only thing that was interesting and got our full attention was the planetarium. The rest seemed to be out of place and with no significant order whatsoever. The staff didn't seem to be very helpful and at times they seemed to be more worried about what they would do that night then helping the visitors
  • There customer service is VERY POOR. The pregnant girl on the first Floor concession was pretty bland. N o smile, no" thank you ", no nothing ......it was more of a disaster because I came with a school and the science center didn't have a door stop and they didn't have a worker polite enough to hold the door. It was sad. The exhibits were fine and that's the good of the one star.
  • The only good part was the planetarium. Brought my children here for the day, and have been to the science center 3 other times and it was great. Will not come back here again. The exhibits are old and most not in working order. Other people complained about this and nothing is getting done. We wasted almost $150 for broken exhibits. It is only for small children anymore.

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
