The Maryland Science Center’s operating hours starting from July 2 to September 3 are as follows:
Monday-Sunday: 10:00am – 6:00pm
Strollers are permitted in much of the Science Center-including our main exhibit halls. However, strollers are not permitted in any of our theaters. There is stroller “parking” near these areas or you can leave your stroller in our Coat Room.
The Maryland Science Center is at 601 Light Street, Baltimore MD 21230. The main number is 410-685-2370.
The Science Center offers delicious, nutritious meals and snacks in Elements Café. We also offer a Brown Bag Zone for those who wish to bring their own food. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Science Center ticket options begin with base admission, which includes our permanent exhibits, demo stage, and planetarium. IMAX films are add-on options that are specially priced and packaged along with base admission for your convenience. Premium IMAX films, which are best known as the Hollywood Blockbuster films, may be purchased separately and are a different cost than a Classic IMAX film. Members enjoy free base admission and Classic IMAX films are available to them at a discount. The Science Center does offer Classic IMAX Only tickets after 4:00 pm on certain days of the week.
What’s not! Since re-opening in May of 2004 the Science Center has welcomed hundreds of thousands of guests into its new exhibit halls, and theaters. On floor explainers, constantly changing IMAX films, and special events and promotions mean that a visit to the Science Center is always different.
Coming Summer 2018: Be enlightened at Science Aglow, the Science Center’s brand new exhibit all about the curiosities of light! Or, make a splash in the Kids Room bigger and better water play area.
