“Very educational plus great for small kids”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

This museum really has it all! My husband and I learned so much and my 8 month old son had fun playing in the children section. Very kid friendly with rocking chairs scattered around that one of the tour guides offered me while I was holding my son and listening to the guided tour. They have crafts for younger kids such as making a train out of pasta or a bridge out of an index card. Would definitely recommend!

“USS Constellation”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

We only went to this ship out of all of them as we have toured similar ships to the others before. Well worth the money! It has a GREAT audio guide that my son really loved.

“Disneyland meets Baltimore”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

The Christmas decorations alone are worth the trip. It's kid-friendly without being overly so. Lots of groups of adults were just as pleased. Take the short train ride and meet some new people. Read the plaques attached to trains and learn wonderful Baltimore history.

“Perfect for Elementary School age children”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Took my son(8 yr old), just last week and he thoroughly enjoyed it.
He especially loved going on the trains to look and see how they looked back in the day. A fun and educational museum.
