    Great interactive experience for children. Offers multiple exhibits including dinosaurs, planet earth, the human body, outer space and Chesapeake Bay life and designed to stimulate learning and interest in science. A must see. IMAX theatre also located at the science center.

    The MSC is a wonderful place for children, and is the focus of many field trips during the school year (keep this in mind when you go - there were many school children there when we went).

    When we visited, my daughter had a cold and was finding it a bit hard to keep up with her very active toddler. That's why we did the IMAX, which is really a bit much for a child of 2 or 3.

    We ate at the Museum Cafe, and then I'm pretty sure we concentrated on two areas (quoting from the website) - On the third floor:

    "The Kids Room for children birth through 8 years of age with an adult chaperone
    Please Note: the Kids Room closes one hour before the museum.

    "Here you can send boats down the river channel in water play, operate the fish cam in the submarine, dress-up like a turtle, and send messages through a tube on the ceiling, plus lots of other fun in the Kids Room, a permanent space dedicated to young children and learning through play."

    And the Science Arcade
    "Dozens of hands-on experiments to touch, push, pull, and turn provide insight into light, magnetism, mechanics, sight, and sound in this exhibit. "

    Museum: Adult $12.00
    Child (3-12) $8.00
    Senior (60+) $11.00

    IMAX $7.50

    Combo
    Adult $15.50
    Child (3-12) $10.50
    Senior (60+) $14.50

    Hours of Operation
    Museum Hours* (effective September 3, 2003 - May 28, 2004):

    Ft. McHenry

    Visit Ft, McHenry in Baltimore Harbor. The flag that flies over the fort is the one about which Francis Scott Keywrote the Star Spangled Banner as he watched the battle which was raging at the time.
