Maryland Science Center

The Mission of the Maryland Science Center is to create awareness in everyone of the importance of science in our lives by engaging them with exciting educational experiences. It is also to motivate our youth to pursue careers in science and technology through community collaboration with academia, government, and industry.

The vision of the Maryland Science Center is to create interest in young people in science by engaging and entertaining them. As one of the most unique and important educational institutions in the region, the Science Center makes science fun; entertainment is the means and education is the end. And because of its well-earned reputation for exhibition excellence and innovative programming, the Maryland Science Center is a national model for “turning on” children to science.

On the top floor the 5,000 square foot kids area is specifically designed for newborns through children up to age eight to explore their world through hands on
activities and personal interaction with their accompanying adults. Dozens of components include: a water table in which children manipulate the flow of water, a “kids harbor” with a fishing pier, and a dedicated infant/toddler room.

"We love this place and I agree that a membership is worth it! The Kids Room is the biggest hit each visit. They can send messages to each other through a vacuum tube, go "fishing" on a "boat", dress up and view on big screen, play in large water table area, visit the story/craft room, play with magnets, plus more! The Dinosaur area just to the right of the front entrance is also a big attraction for my kids. They love "digging" for fossils and creating their own dinosaur and e-mailing it back to home. The science experiment room to the left of the front entrance does have lots of great thinking activities (pulleys, airflow, sound, magnets, earthquakes...). They offer a "Wiggle Wednesday" program for toddlers that's fun!"

One of my Baltimore favorites

"Such a great place! I have brought my son since he was toddling around. The year membership is the way to go because it is pricey per visit, especially with kids, you can only be there a short time. There are wonderful science experiments that make the kids think. There is a great kids room that is the highlight with a water table, a submarine, legos and crafts. The only drawback is the cafeteria is really below average. The food is all unhealthy and not tasty. My advice: bring your own lunch an"

"The best part of the Science Center is the kids room on the top floor. Take the elevator and wind through the quiet exhibit area to a room full of kids having a great time. They have a huge water table and lego earthquake zones to name a few. If you live in Baltimore, get a family membership just for this fun room."
