There is a lot of history packed into a relatively small space with many exhibits and displays, live animals including otters, a touch tank and more. You can linger for quite some time reading all of the information. There are great areas for small children,...More

A great place for a day with inclement weather. Geared toward children but I think adults would find it interesting too. They have a great little gift shop. The restaurant next door is very good.

I was very impressed with the Discovery Center. So much history and information about the area. If you are going to be on the Eastern Shore of Maryland worth the visit.
