  • Great fun with nephews. Combines Fun and learning. Fun little soccer field, new exhibits each time we've gone, huge jungle gym/maze. Brings the kid out of ya. Suggest adding STEM themed exhibit.
  • Awesome museum with a ton of things for kids to do. From waterplay to climbing, to imaginative play in the mini diner, this place can occupy kids for HOURS. The staff are attentive and seem to be doing a good job of making sure everyone is safe.
  • This is such an incredibly fun and educational places to bring kids of any age! From the 3-story playscape right in the lobby as you enter to the multitude of rooms, there is something here for every child. We cannot wait to go back!
  • I've only been to 2 children's museum's in my life, so this one ranks in my top 2. For what it cost to get inside I did expect more, but the child we had with us seemed to enjoy it, so that's what matters. I would say that a child of the 5-10 range would enjoy it the most, and maybe a 12 year old might find it a little entertaining too. It would have been nice to see more interactive things the kids could have done. The big play area right when you walk in seems to be the most popular thing in the building with kids. It does look like it would be fun to play in, but its really unrelated to science.
  • Visited Baltimore from out of town and was looking for fun things that my 1 year old would enjoy. She had a great time here, especially in the Oasis Room (calm toys and books) and really loved the Tot area. I definitely would say though that there didn't seem to be too much for kids older than 5 or 6 to do. But younger than that, I'd say it's a good few full hours.
