What is there to do?

The Chesapeake Children's Museum is a place where kids can go to not only learn about themselves through play, but also learn about people, technology and ecology of the Chesapeake Bay area!

Exhibit spaces within the museum cover a range of themes which are great as a learning experience for all who visit.

Bay Window Live Animals is always a popular exhibit for the kids, with aquatic and land-living creatures representing regional wildlife and providing firsthand observations of their habits and habitats.

Feeling like the captain of your own ship? Well why not as you climb aboard a ten-foot boat and dock to act out your own watermen scenes. Don't forget to grab the props such as life jackets, nets, plush crabs and fish to add to the realism of your adventure!

It's not just indoor playtime at Chesapeake Children's Museum either. There are a number of outdoor areas including an outdoor classroom, and an amphitheater of toad stools. 

Blueberry Hill Fresh food attracts wildlife and teaches children that we are all nourished by living things, and you  might just spot some local creatures who live in the area too!

A charming children's museum for playful, inquisitive and active kids in Maryland!
