Reviewed 29 July 2013

Visited the Science Center with friends who were visiting with teenage children and we really enjoyed our visit. There is something there for everyone to see, touch and experience.

“Maryland Science Center”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a very hands on experience. When everything is working (which is not all the time.) it is well worth the money for a daytrip. This is an all day trip. There are so many things to see and do. It is a bit pricey but you can buy a one year membership for a family for not much more then the one day expense Thats when its a real bargain when you buy the one year membership and go more then 2 times

“Great 1/2 day”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We took my 10 year old and the wet lab is a must do with your children. We spent half the day there saw everything and had a great time. Super friendly staff that sets up smaller exhibits around the center.

“Science for everyone!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

The Maryland Science Center truly does have something for everyone ages three to four through adults. There are many permanent exhibits, the planetarium, the children's room, and the Imax theater. There are often special exhibits, special displays set up, as well as special programming. Beaker's Café is satisfactory, not great. Worth a visit- lots to do- spend a minimum of three hours.

“alittle misleading”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

website made it seen like was a large place with a lot to do. got there only to find rooms are small and there wasn't as much as I thought there would be . there was some. but most of it was mostly looking at and reading things. my 6 year nephew got bored very quickly seems more for older children. not a bad place, just not for everyone.
