family fun at the port discovery children's museum

There's no place better to inspire imaginations than among the fun, interactive exhibits at one of Baltimore's favorite family destinations. Kids between the ages of 2 and 10 will find limitless possibilities to play and engage in activities that stimulate both mind and body. Create a work of art at the BGE Studio Workshop. Become an archeologist for the day at Adventures Expeditions. Or climb to the top of KidWorks, a three-story urban treehouse. Of course, little ones under 2 can enjoy Toddler Trails and The Oasis. Make a day of it with the whole family at Port Discovery.
