About Maryland Science Center, Baltimore

This place is one of the prime reasons for which The Beautiful Inner harbor area in the heart of the city is what it is today. This science museum helped in the restoration of this area from a declining maritime spot to a brimming downtown square. The science museum that is now rated amongst the top 5 in the country has also been awarded as “The Best Museum for Kids” award in 2008. The museum originally includes 3 levels of exhibits, a planetarium and an observatory. These have with passing years been continuously developed and equipped with the best technologies and facilities.

This museum was opened to the public in the year 1976 and after a span of just 12 years it was equipped with a lovely IMAX Theatre. In 2004 many other modifications were made and hand on activity facilities were put in. The museum now boasts of thousands of dinosaur skeletons and other displays of the fields of Physics, astronomics, earth, human bodies and water life.

The main exhibits here include:

  • The Dinosaur Mysteries: This includes full body models of two dinosaurs. There are also large skeletons of these ancient animals. This section includes an interesting activity portion where visitors can become paleontologists and start finding dinosaur fossils from under the ground.
  • Newton’s Alley: This section includes hands on activities including a Bernoulli Blower, Inertia Table, etc.
  • Your Body: This interesting exhibit takes on a tour of your own body. Here you enter a human body to see all the different inner parts of the body.
  • Our Place in Space: This exhibit shows detailed pictures and info about the solar system, universe and Milky Way. They also arrange regular presentation and shows. The Davis Planetarium is also included in here.
  • Follow the Blue Crab: Maryland Blue Crab along with other marine species are featured over here.
  • The Kid’s Room: This room is meant for children 8 years and below and their parents. Here you will see mock ships, water games and other games for very little children.

Maryland Science Center, Baltimore Reviews

  • From Cleveland OH and visiting. Had a great time with our 5/3/1 YEAR olds. A little busy on a Monday with all of the school field trips. But still fun. We ate at the Cafe in the SC and it was very good as well!!

  • This place is great! It is clean, staff is very friendly, and there are tons of events to do throughout the year. Memberships are worth the spend, especially since it takes about two, maybe three, days to really enjoy all the exhibits that are around. We have been to laser events, New year's events, and several others this year. Each time the kids really enjoy theirselves and love teaching their friends when they tag along. Overall, if you want a great place for kids to learn with hands on experience, then this is the place to go!

  • Lots of great things... Little dated. Some exhibits haven't changed much in ages. Also, usually mobbed on the weekends, school holidays - naturally.

  • It was a blessing to go on a school trip with son from jersey to Baltimore Maryland boat ride ,the aquarium the sites baseball and football stadium the dolphin show very nice place to visit

  • I'm sure it's great with kids. I on the other hand was alone here on business. Not too much diversity for everyone. Was a little bored. Not the museum's fault but I have been to museum's where the word "children" is in it and it has great exibhits for everyone. Ex. Boston Children's Museum of Science. Is definitely well worth the price and can hang for hours alone.
