  • There are 3 stories of fun for kids of varying ages!!! I would've given it 5 stars but I did not like that although some of the rooms were for specific ages any child was allowed in. I have a small child and was not pleased when 5 and 6 yr olds were bumping around in the 3 and under room. There are plenty of other areas for them to enjoy. Although I expected the play areas to seem frequently used it was nice and the toys were in good shape and not sticky. It is one of a kind and definitely a nice place to visit.
  • A very fun place to take kids to do some educational things as well as climb and slide. I feel like they're missing out on selling food. You can bring your own food and sit down in a cafeteria though, and there are places to eat nearby like subway. There is no child check in / verification system like Chuck E Cheese. The birthday party activities are kind of weak. A scavenger hunt to win a bouncy ball. I just assume to not have a birthday activity at all and just roam free and check out the exhibits
  • So many things for kids to do! Cargo nets, slides, drum room, learning classrooms, water room, soccer court, etc. The one thing I didn't like is that it can be very hard to track your children when they are climbing up the tree house, nets, etc. They can get off at any of the 3 levels. Make sure you tell your children to meet you at a meeting point if you can't physically climb through everything with them. Lots of fun!
  • So much fun!!! Er um, I mean educational for the kids... Ehh, who am I kidding, this place is amazing, for ALL ages! Little kids will love to play, older students can learn from the exhibits, and even the grown-ups can cut loose and join in the fun.
  • This place is simply incredible. There's almost always some special exhibit or activity night and kids from 2 to 10 will have the time of their lives exploring and playing all day. If we lived in Baltimore, a membership here would be a no-brainer, but the $15 day's pass is still a bargain compared to what you'll see other, much less- spectacular places charge. Port Discovery is also very careful to ensure wristbands match when children leave (to prevent kidnappings, I assume) and adults cannot purchase passes without simultaneously paying for an accompanying child. Tip: have your AAA card for 10% off or sign up for an Ikea friends and family account for 50% off one admission.
