Free Admission for 85,000 Students, Educators, and Chaperones
The most comprehensive free admission program of any institution in Maryland.
Each year, 85,000 students, educators, and chaperones visit us at the Inner Harbor– at no cost!
All schools in Maryland – public, private, parochial, charter and home – benefit from this opportunity. Teachers bring their classes to the Maryland Science Center year after year because they know the importance of informal science education. They know that since our exhibits align with Maryland state curriculums, their field trip will reinforce what they’re teaching in the classroom.
You might remember YOUR free field trip to the Maryland Science Center. After 40 years, we’ve hosted three generations of students. Today’s field trippers are experiencing informal science education just like their parents and (and sometimes grandparents) did!
