The Sci Center is definitely one of our family's favorite places. Our boys (5 & 7) can and have spent literal hours in the kid's room. They also always want to see the planetarium show and then go to the room next door to build lunar landing modules. They also like the live science stage presentations, to say nothing of all the "Newton's Alley" machines they can play with. Plenty of food choices close by - either on property or close walking distance. If you can hit a clear Friday night, the free observatory on the top floor with its huge old telescope (manned by someone who knows how to use it well)is also very worthwhile.

Every September, the Maryland Science Center offers homeschool programs for a very reasonable price. My 4 year old has attended several of the preschool-aged programs and loved it. Both of my daughters love the Kids Room which allows them to play, touch and experiment with the equipment. Their favorite is the giant water table where they can erect damns to direct water flow.

My son and I really enjoy the Science Center. His favorite thing about it at 4 years old has always been the water play area. We love that everything is touch and learn and play. They have some great demos throughout the day - truly a way to make science come alive so that my son learns and remembers (without even realizing it!) Oh, and they offer Homeschooling Classes in September! We can't wait to attend.

The Science Museum is a wonderful hands-on experience for children. Children can do rock climbing with the gear provided by the museum, learn how clouds are formed, dig for fossils, learn about dinosaurs, and many other things. It's a wonderful way to spend a day leanring about science.
