We visited Baltimore just so that we could come back to the museum. We were here 5 years ago when our daughter was 2 and now we have a 3 year old. We wanted him to experience it as well. The museum did not disappoint. There are 3 floors of nothing but exhibits for children to enjoy all day. My son loved the Soccer area and we had to visit that exhibit twice. The kids were so tired when we left, but very happy. If you have children, this is a must!

Would be 5 stars if it was admission was not so expensive. We enjoy coming here especially in the winter time. The indoor playground/treehouse is guaranteed to exhaust the kids. I'd recommend mostly for kids 10 and under. They do have everything here from imaginary play, art, music and educational rooms.

I was there about 8 years ago and just went back this week. The museum it showing a lot of were & tear. The exhibits are old & in need of an upgrade, At 16.00 per person, it is not by any means a bargain.

Great way to spend the day with younger ones.

The kids were engaged with a lot of hands on activities. There is a lot of educational and physical activities.

Parking is very walkable and validation is very much appreciated.

This spot is ok if its not ideal to be outdoors or your time is limited in Baltimore. In my opinion, there are many other things to do with children that won't break the bank. Don't get me wrong, this place isn't bad; it just isn't as good as other places that I've visited that cater to children.
