Inspiring Life-Long Curiosity
Welcome to Port Discovery Children’s Museum, ranked among the top 12 children’s museums in the United States! (Forbes)
Port Discovery offers three floors of interactive, educational exhibits and ever-changing drop-in programs and special events for children ages birth through 10.
Children of all ages can dream big, take risks, learn and play in our hands-on exhibits. Get healthy and fit in Kick It Up!. Splish splash in Wonders of Water. Shop and pump gas at the Royal Farms Convenience Store and Fill’er Up Station. Cook and serve food in Tiny’s Diner. Decipher hieroglyphics and find clues that will lead you to a pharaoh's lost tomb in Adventure Expeditions. We feature areas for our youngest visitors, too - Toddlers can walk and crawl through Tot Trails, and little ones can go on a imaginative journey in our magical Oasis.
With so many areas to climb and explore, be sure to wear closed toe, flat soled shoes and comfortable clothes so you can enjoy a fun and safe learning experience through the adventure of play!
Port Discovery is a non-profit Children’s Museum, so each dollar that you spend on General Admission to the Museum helps support our mission to provide every child with access to purposeful play, as well as to take our programs and exhibits out into schools, Judy Centers, Head Starts, libraries and other locations in the community!
Programs and exhibits at Port Discovery are made possible in part by the Citizens of Baltimore County and by the Howard County Arts Council through a grant from Howard County Government.
