Port Discovery Children’s Museum, Baltimore

Children’s museums are usually fun – but then again, there are some that are just amazingly, crazy fun! And that is exactly what you get when you bring your kids over to the Port Discovery Children’s Museum at 35 Market Place, Baltimore to spend a whole day touring and learning (yes, they get to learn too!) through all their interactive and educational displays. Sounds like an exciting time for your kids, right? Well, pick up the phone and make a booking for a Baltimore charter bus and load your kids into it and come on over to the Port Discovery Children’s Museum for some exciting fun time!

When you and your kids arrive at the Port Discovery Children’s Museum in your Baltimore charter bus, you will almost immediately know why it has been voted as one of the Top 12 Children’s Museums in the country by Forbes in the year 2012. A huge building with three floors filled with interesting exhibits and displays that will enable the children to touch, learn and play throughout – it almost seem like a really big toy town for the kids! If you happen to have a younger child among you, don’t worry, they do have a separate room just for the toddlers.

Some of the fun things to do at the Port Discovery Children’s Museum is learning to stay healthy in their Kick It Up! program, learn to cook and serve the food, learn a ‘chicken’ dance, play with huge drums and so on. Out of all the exhibits and displays at the museum, a very important aspect of the museum would be the Gardens Initiative that was launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and the Institute of Museum and Library Services to fight childhood obesity, which is to help children learn to make healthy food choices and encourage physical activities via their interactive displays and programs. Parents (especially the mothers!) traveling in the Baltimore charter bus with their toddlers especially love the Toddler room because it is safe, clean and fun to keep the young ones occupied and having a good time without much fuss.
The staff at the museum work really hard to keep the museum clean and fun for the children, while the exhibits are ever-changing too to keep the museum afresh and relevant with new things all the time. After all, if you want to keep the little ones coming back, you can’t be having the same old, same old all the time. We won’t be surprised if your little ones are pestering for another trip to the museum soon after they get on the chartered Baltimore bus to go home.
