Port Discovery Baltimore, Maryland.

The weather was perfect today for a day out with the kids, though I spent a few hours of this lovely day inside the fun Port Discovery in Baltimore. The kids had a great time exploring the mini reality. It’s a great museum with the kiddies’ version of what we adults do around town on a daily basis. 

Here kids get to explore a few floors of different themed rooms. The entrance has this great set up of a play supermarket and gas station with the pump and all. 

There are other fun rooms on this floor that change theme time to time when we visit. At the beginning of the year while exploring Baltimore I decided to get a yearly ticket here for about $25. So in my group of four, we have a family member card of $100 for the whole year. It was a better bet for me because the kids go there often. So instead of paying an entry fee of $14.95 for ages 2 and above, I just walk in like the kids below two who get in for FREE. With this membership pass we get the VIP entrance with no lines each time we go and of course we don’t pay, sounds like some insurance, but seriously it’s a great bargain.

There is a huge urban tree house at the center of the building where kids can climb through and get to each floor if they choose not to use the stairs or the elevator. There is a room for all ages, a little room that looks like a crèche and then a room with a little library in it’s corner and plenty more activities for creativity. Then there is the diner, every single item here looks edible, watch out for the kids here, we all get hungry in this room every time. 

The top floor has this Lego castle theme with the dragon on one extreme end and the little throne on the other end. Kids can dress up for the part if they want to really get in to character, there’s a box of costumes that are set out for all the fun. There are side chairs on each floor in case anyone gets tired and there's a snack room for you to have your lunch in.

 There is parking right around the corner of the building, we spent about 4 hours in that area and paid $20 for parking. There's lots to do downtown in Baltimore but the Port Discovery is definitely one of the most enjoyable choices for your kids to get creative.
