Why We Celebrate Science
We’re building a community that shares our love of science by creating connections through innovative programs, authentic experiences, and advocacy for our mission.
We believe that science forms a foundation for lifelong learning and curiosity. Our signature brand of science education celebrates the “how come?” and the “what if?’’ And we celebrate a collective exploration that leads to a shared sense of discovery. Let’s science.

Will be back for more fun!
The kids had a fantastic time with all the interactive exhibits, we probably spent an hour in the water table area alone!
Great time on a field trip.
I had a great time here with my daughter's school for their field trip. There is so much for the children to do, the Maryland Science Center really does do an exceptional job of making learning fun.
We loved the dinosaur exhibit and the space exhibit. It was cool to experience laying on a bed of nails as well.
An enjoyable Sunday afternoon visit
Visited with my daughters. The science exhibits were educational and fun. We enjoyed the planetarium show very much. We loved the science experiment show about polymer chemistry. Worth seeing.
Always Celebrating Science
Hands on, interactive and fun experiences around every corner! The kiddos blasted through so many exhibits and didn’t realize how much they were learning!
This place is great!
It is clean, staff is very friendly, and there are tons of events to do throughout the year.
