Port Discovery Children's Museum

Port Discovery Children's Museum provides experiences which ignite imagination, inspire learning, and nurture growth through play.

Port Discovery Children’s Museum is the ideal interactive setting for play to be structured and organized in a manner that fully transforms it into learning. Imaginative play fosters creativity, curiosity, empathy, and self-esteem and establishes the foundation for future academic success. As a resource for the community and an environment where informal learning can flourish, Port Discovery offers diverse programs for young learners that have a record of success.

These include:
• Art Ventures – award winning after school program – now in its 8th year
• Discovery Days – special days for children with special needs
• Healthy First Saturdays – monthly focus on healthy living
• Countdown to Kindergarten – annual free event for Baltimore City kindergarten bound children and their families
• I Have A Dream Weekend – celebration of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King
• Hispanic Heritage Celebration – annual month long event
• Noontime New Year – annual international celebration

The effects and benefits of coming to Port Discovery are as diverse as the experience. Children who visit Port Discovery better understand themselves, have improved interactions with and understanding of others, and increase their knowledge of and connection to the world around them. They are exposed to a range of concepts, ideas, and subjects that support their learning in more structured environments. In addition, children are exposed to the arts and physical activity, two areas that are often the first to be eliminated from the public school system. Here at
Port Discovery, these activities are part and parcel of the integrated learning experience.

"Not a huge fan of this place mainly because of the large climbing structure throughout the center of the complex. The children can climb and slide all over the place however, they can slide and climb to completely different floors that an adult cannot get to! I was told I could not slide down with my 3 year old. I have toddlers so I'm not comfortable with him or her sliding down from the 2nd floor to the 1st floor which then opens up into the rest of the museum (structure is not completely self contained). There is a water play room that the kids loved but when I went about a year ago, many of the things in the room weren't completely working."
