“Kids loved it”
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”
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)

“Experiencing technical difficulties...”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Having been to many 'hands on' museums like this, I know that things tend to break or be out of order. But it seemed to be the norm when we were there last week and not the exception. It would have been nice to see someone working on any of these computers/screens/machines, but alas - they weren't working, and no one was working on them.

All in all - lots of good stuff, it was just frustrating to have so many stations not working.

“A lot of fun with my kids!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We visited the Maryland Science Center one day during Spring Break. We had SO much fun! The whole museum was filled with new experiences and learning opportunities, and I thought it did a great job at providing for younger and older audiences. My kids are younger (4 and 6) and there was definitely some stuff that was much older than they could understand yet, but plenty that they were able to learn. We really enjoyed the whole museum, and will definitely be back to try a new show at the planetarium and discover other things we might have missed.
