  • OK, it was a rainy day and I had a friend in from CT. We walked just a half block to the venue I took my children to when they were young (under age 10). Had not been to the North Museum in many moons...  more »
  • This small, full, museum is just a delight. I regularly take the wee grandchildren here. The two and five years olds love the movies. We have all learned so much from each one. Buy a year pass and jus...  more »
  • This is a great place to visit, especially with young kids. Most of the exhibits and planetarium shows tend to be geared for younger students. Adults will also like the awesome collection of birds in ...  more »

  • Small museum, great for a quick day trip. Has a planetarium which is always fun! Get the yearly membership which is good at over 300 other museums for free! You can use at Maryland Science Center.
  • My 5 year old daughter loved it so much that we became members. It's a smaller museum, but very clean and great for the 3 to 8 age group. Membership also currently includes access to over 300 other museums.
  • My parents used to take my sisters and I to the museum when we were young. They were so excited to check it out with the remodeling that has been going on. We could not have been more disappointed. Aside from the displays being underwhelming (we brought my 3 year old nephew), the museum is very baby unfriendly. There was no changing table in the supposedly new bathrooms and no counter space. I had to change my 3 month old on the floor of the bathroom. When my well-meaning mother asked the front desk attendant if there was a comfortable place for me to nurse (I was already nursing while wearing her), she responded, "Well, no, but it is allowed". So nice of her to give me permission to feed my child. She then had the nerve to add, "Just be discreet about it, there are children here". Needless to say we will not be returning.
  • Was looking forward to visiting since we haven't seen the remodel. However, we paid nearly $20 to see a few fossils and animals we could have seen at "That Pet Place". An entire section was shut down on the first floor and the second floor consisted of 2 dozen pictures. Big whoop! The theater is an extra cost and they were full for the last showing of that day. Yes, I should have checked the schedule but there should have been more to see. Took my 7 yr old won't go back.
  • This is a wonderful wonderful place for children and adults of all ages!
