You can spend the entire day exploring 4 floors of the Maryland Science Center. The amount of time you can kill there alone is worth the admission price. Personally, I find it a bit boring, but I am not one for hands-on learning and experimenting with science. Plenty of other adults, however, had a great time. I'd say the age... More

Our 12 year old nephew came in from out of town and we took him to the Maryland Science Center in August 2015. We were there for 3 hours and could have stayed longer. It is an attraction that has SO MANY exhibits and hands-on activities for ALL ages. In addition there are science educators in some of the areas... More

We bought the annual membership through Living Social and were not disappointed. My kids 9 and 4 enjoyed spending a few hours including a science demonstration and a planetarium show. The kids also enjoyed laying on a bed of nails and learning about Maryland Blue Crabs. We spent 2 plus hours and didn't even make it through half the museum.... More

We enjoyed the exhibits and plan to go again after purchasing a member deal via Living Social. Our kids are ages 10, 7, & 2 (free) so it is perfect for them. We spent about 2 hours there and didn't see everything. My husband and I even got into some of the activities! It was a great family outing! Husband... More

I took my grandson and his friend there, they both loved it. Food was average but we enjoyed all the hands on exhibits. We purchased a membership which means we will return several times throughout the year. Great place for a rainy/cold day!

Great exhibits and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Arrow parking was conveniently just across the street. A must visit for any aspiring young scientists or curious mind!

My husband and I took our two teenage sons here. I think that we had more fun than they did! Great "experiments", an excellent IMAX and a terrific dinosaur exhibit.

We got another membership to the Maryland Science Center this year and we're so glad to use it! My kids have so much fun learning in the different areas and we enjoy learning, too! The staff is usually very friendly, too! We could easily spend most of our day here.

The Maryland Science Center is a great place to go on a date, take the family, or a large group. Another nice place at the Inner Habor.
