Kids - are you ready to PLAY! At the Port Discovery Children's Museum in the great city of Baltimore, kids can spend time playing, exploring and experimenting with the interactive and hands-on exhibits. Each exhibit is designed specifically for kids to learn through play - so parents love it too!
The museum offers a safe and smart place for kids to embrace playful learning, and develop their senses leading to healthier and more engaged lives. Sounds pretty great to us!
There are over 13 permanent exhibits at the Port Discovery Children's Museum that the kids can enjoy. Those creative minds can express themselves in the BGE StudioWorkshop, or they can travel back to 1920s Egypt for the adventure of a lifetime! Kids have to use their skills and decipher hieroglyphics that will lead them to more clues, and eventually the pharaohs lost tomb! An amazing discovery!
Those active kids will love to jump, crawl, climb and slide through the three-story treehouse at KidWords. If they dare to cross that narrow rope bridge, then surprises might await them on the other side!
From exhibits where kids need to use their detective skills, to learning about healthy choices on their very own farm, and even a realistic 1950's diner where kids can "cook" and serve food - Port Discovery Children's Museum is filled with creativity, fun, and imaginative play!
The museum also have visiting exhibits, so keep an eye on what else is on so you can mark your favorites in the diary, as well as the events they hold across the week including storytime and discount admissions!
