The Maryland Science Center in Baltimore offers a mind-blowing look through the eye of the Hubble Space Telescope and features massive dinosaur skeletons. There’s even a dino-dig so you can feel what it’s like to be a paleontologist. Also in Baltimore, Port Discovery Children’s Museum is like a world unto itself with a fabulous water room, KidWorks, an enormous four-story jungle gym, a toddler room for tykes two and under, and even a kid-scale diner. Kid conductors and would-be firefighters will love the trains at the B&O Railroad Museum and the displays at The Fire Museum of Maryland.

FlamingoZoos and Discovery Center
The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is home to more than 2,000 animals in naturalistic exhibits such as the African penguin exhibit, where these best-dressed birds glide through currents and leap through waves. You can even whiz down a tree slide. At the Plumpton Park Zoo in Rising Sun you can hand feed Jimmie the Giraffe. The Salisbury Zoo makes for a perfect break on the way to the beach or an adventure all its own. Don’t miss the Catoctin Wildlilfe Preserve and Zoo in Thurmont and the Plumpton Park Zoo in Rising Sun. Kiddie Cousteaus will love the Calvert Marine Museum with its giant megalodon shark skeleton and frolicsome river otters, Bubbles and Squeak. And don’t miss Baltimore’s National Aquarium: with sharks and an immersive coral reef, this stunning facility at the Inner Harbor welcomes visitors to a world of water.

Colonial InterpreterHistory & Herstory
St. Mary’s City in Southern Maryland is where the state began, with the landing of the Ark and Dove, the ships that brought the first settlers to the colony that became Maryland. The African-American experience has been inextricably woven through the fabric of Maryland’s rich history.A trip to Baltimore isn’t complete without a visit to Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. In Frederick, immerse yourself in the National Museum of Civil War Medicine for a window into the harsh realities and pioneering work of Civil War doctors and nurses. Then follow the trail of the war through Monocacy National Battlefield, and Antietam National Battlefield
