Located just adjacent to the famous Fish Market building in the Inner harbor area of the city, this is probably the most colorful museum in here. The reason for this is that this museum is mainly dedicated to little children. This museum has been set up in place of the historic Children’s Museum that was earlier on over here. After its revival the name has just been changed to what we know today.
There is not much substantial to find here for elders but what we find here is of lot of meaning for children. They will simply have their best time over here with the exciting exhibits and activities. The displays include Royal Farm Convinience Store, Wonders of water, Kid Works, adventure expeditions, Tot Trails, Tiny’s Diner, The Oasis, miss Perceptions Mystery House, Studio workshop, Keep It Up!, etc.

Port Discovery Children Museum Reviews & Ratings
Great children's museum geared for play. Newly renovated so the bathrooms and new locker/eating area are nice and clean. My kids ages 1 to 6 had a blast discovering different play areas like the new ship, the water play room (bring a change of clothes!), Egypt adventure and so much hands on Discovery area. The new sky climber and slide are fun - a little scary for my younger kids and less climbing than there used to be, but clean and safe and fun. There are some great baby areas too, so I felt like everyone could play how they wanted to. Recommend a trip here with kids!
Awesome awesome place! We took our 8 month old and was able to enjoy all three floors! Great touch/ explore the senses attractions even for the littlest hands. The staff were very helpful, they have socks you can purchase. Will be coming back in a year or two when our child can do more things and explore and learn in new ways. Highly recommended!
What a wonderful facility especially ran by an amazing staff. We literally can spent an entire day here. Such a great place for the kids to run around and engage in various types of activities like water play, climbing, reading, and present play! So much learning and fun. We love it. There is also a special area where you can sit down and eat and they provide wipes to sanitize before you sit down! How many places do that? Some places don’t even supply enough toilet papers! Love the fundraising team on their responsiveness! We purchased monogram blocks for the children to play as part of the exhibit and the staff went out of their ways to allow us to see it and let our children release them into the exhibit for other kids to play. Get the annual membership. It’s definitely worth it if you return multiple times throughout the year!
I took my 4 & 2 year old during a weekday, and though the facility is very nice, they got bored pretty quickly. There is a neat play area for babies (~9-15ish months), and a 3-story slide for kids 5+, but there isn't much for kids in between to climb, play, and discover. The place has mostly displays which kids this age are not interested in, so I think there is a missed opportunity. Also, not only are tickets expensive, but parking is $25! I will probably not return here, even when the kids get older.
My son had a blast. This was a stop during our weekend trip down from New Jersey. He's 4 and thoroughly enjoyed it there. Definitely a great place to go after the a day at the aquarium where the kids can stretch their legs and burn some energy. Will definitely be going back soon!
