A special place just for kids 0-8 years old
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 pneumatic tube on the ceiling. Enter the Kids Room, a space dedicated to young children and learning through play.
- Large water play area*
- Undersea world with periscope and submarine theme
- Pneumatic messaging system, streetscape, and giant pinscreen
The water play area is currently under construction. Please, pardon our dust as we work to bring you a new and improved water play area!
Buttons to push, knobs to turn, and blocks for building
Bright colors and kid-sized objects to manipulate are everywhere in this special place for the Science Center’s youngest visitors. There’s even an area for kids under two—Room To Grow—where infants and toddlers can crawl around squishy waterbeds and play with big soft blocks.
Pint-size engineering, construction, and experimenting
Kids can construct waterways and dams in the popular water play area, build Lego towers and structures out of plastic pipe, or immerse themselves in an undersea world complete with deep sea coves, a fishing pier, and tugboat helm. There’s even a Baltimore streetscape with doorknobs to turn, steps to climb, doorbells to ring, flags to raise, and a chance to meet the famous people who live along the street.
Come into the Learning Lab in the Kids Room to share some fun and interesting early childhood educational opportunities with your child. Play with your child while teaching them some fundamental science, math, technology, and engineering skills. The room activities are designed for young children with adult supervision.
Special Note to Kids Room Visitors
Every weekday morning the Kids Room is completely field trip free until 10:30am, and on Thursdays we are field trip free until 11:30am. So, bring your little one and come wiggle, squirm and play.
