Great time at Port Discovery
Apr 23, 2014 by: barb a from Baltimore, Maryland
I took my grand daughter and a friend of hers recently to Port Discovery. Compared to the other Baltimore attractions, this one is a super deal. The price is great, you get a great parking discount, and if you want to, you can leave for lunch at one of the great places within a few minutes walk and return without having to pay again. There are tons of activities for kids of all ages up to maybe 10 or so. Bring dry clothes though if your kids love water! There's a whole room of water exploration, but I don't think anyone comes out of there dry! This is a particularly great place to go if the kids have been cooped up from snow/ rain/ cold weather or too hot weather. They should be exhausted by the time you leave and may even go to bed early for you. Have fun!
Great fun, but watch your kids!

The kids, aged 4-7, had a great time running around and climbing in the amazing "urban treehouse." Some of the permanent exhibits were aimed at very young kids (4 and under), although there was definitely enough to keep the older ones happy. Just one caution - the urban treehouse is big and has exits on each floor so it's impossible to keep an eye on the kids and hard to track them through the maze unless you follow them around or place parents at each exit. I'm not usually so paranoid, however this was especially unnerving since the main door was manned by only one person who did not check all wristbands of kids and adults who were leaving the premises.

Amazing discovery museum! Staff super nice. Negative aspect: too crowded, management should have a limited number of visitors.
Little ones loved it

We took our 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 year old daughter and son. They absolutely loved it especially the diner and the water area. The bubble pulley maker was a hit. They also made butterflies to take home and played in the Tot Trails. Great when there were not a lot of people earlier in the morning but we felt overwhelmed and left around noon when it was extremely busy. A nice bonus for me as an overprotective mom was the bracelets that we all wore being checked on the way out, however my kids both started picking at them within a half hour of putting them on. If it was closer to home, we would definitely go again but only when quiet.
Worth the trip

We visited Port Discovery for the first time and was glad we made the trip. The overall first impression you get while walking in is, Wow! They have so many different areas where the kids can play and it's appropriate for all ages. My three year old had a blast!!! I also appreciated the staff checking bracelets of myself, husband and son to make sure they matched. The museum was extremely busy but it didn't feel overwhelming. Parking is offered next door to the museum or around the corner.
