Description Goes Here

All Maryland Schools Visit Free!

At the Maryland Science Center, our hands-on exhibits form the core of our educational initiatives and are the foundation of our school enrichment programs. Our three exhibit floors provide unique learning experiences that can’t be recreated in the classroom. All Maryland schools can explore our general exhibits for FREE (non-Maryland schools for a discounted rate).


Your free admission gets you access to all our general admission exhibits! Some of our favorites includes:

  • Newton’s Alley, an interactive exhibit filled with the phenomena of physics
  • Your Body: The Inside Story, where sights, sounds, smells, and sensations come together to show the science of everyday life
  • Dinosaur Mysteries, a hall where dinos roam and roar as you and your fellow paleontologists explore excavation sites and dig pits
