Visiting on a day when I think all the schools in the area were there for a field trip. couldn't get to see a lot of the exhibits because of this fact. It seemed to be interesting. The dinosaurs were great.

The Science Center was fun for our whole family. It kept our 12 year old sons attention for 4 hours. Better than we anticipated from other reviewers.

...nothing spectacular for the older folks unless there is a special exhibit. The Human anatomy exhibit years ago was awesome. Admission is expensive for the limited exhibits.

Visited the Maryland Science Center with kids 8, 10 and 12. The kids loved the hands on experiences. It was a little pricey for adults and not really geared to adults, but we had a teacher discount which made it much more reasonable.

The MSC has many great exhibits and is very hands on. Definitely geared toward kids 2-12. I highly recommend watching the Flight of the Monarchs movie. This is a popular destination for field trips, so consider going later in the day during the school year....More

This trip would be great entertainment if you had kids. The title is kind of deceiving . I would include children’s somewhere in the title. But it was something to do !

we hadn't visited here in 15 years and loved our return visit. Very updated and interesting. We especially enjoyed the space section. It's a must visit place.
