What's New At The Maryland Science Center (Baltimore, MD)

DISCLOSURE: I received free admission in exchange for a review. No further compensation was provided.

It's been probably over five years since we last visited the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. This past weekend, my family and I had a chance to check out the two new exhibits that opened this past summer. It was a great way to spend a rainy Sunday morning.

We started our visit by checking out some of our old favorite exhibits at the Maryland Science Center. My one son LOVES dinosaurs so we spent a considerable amount of time in the Dinosaur Mysteries exhibit. It was fun digging for fossils, making our own dinosaurs and checking out the dinosaur skeletons.

Next, we headed up to the 3rd Floor to check out the new Water Play addition to the Kids Room. It includes more interactive elements and a Chesapeake Bay theme. There are pipes, spigots, sprayers and spouts to play with and even a water-spitting crab!

The kids had a lot of fun building a dam out of the blocks and playing with the pipes.

After playing with the other exhibits in the Kids Room, we headed down to the Second Floor to visit the new Science Aglow exhibit. It introduces the electromagnetic spectrum and features 25 interactive activities, including capturing your shadow on a glow-in-the-dark wall, using a thermal camera and playing with mirrors and lenses.

Overall, we had a great trip to the Maryland Science Center. We would definitely try and make another visit soon since we definitely not get a chance to see everything.
