Great place to spend a few hours! Enjoyed planetarium and IMAX, liked the hands on things, the demo stage was really cool!! Perfect place for a cold or rainy day at the inner harbor

“Fun family place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Lots to do for kids from 2-8. Dinosaur room on the first floor is fun. Fake dinosaur skeletons and a fossil dig area. A children's room on the third level has a water table, blocks, cool gravity games, and a submarine type area. Easy place to spend four or five hours.

“Kids loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We live close by so we visit a few times a year or more when there are special events and or exhibits, the kids love it, always something new, cool and exciting to see and do. And the IMAX theater is great.

“Lots to do with kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a great science museum with lots to do with the kids. Wonderful hands on exhibits and demonstrations. Everything worked, too! Probably the best science museum I've been to (we typically go to the Liberty Science center and the Franklin Institute)
