Getting There and Getting In:
Christy: It is right on the Inner Harbor so it was super easy to find. We parked in a lot for $15.00 for the day. We arrived at 11:30 a.m. and there were only two people in line in front of us, so we were able to get right in.
Victoria: It was very easy to find. We parked in a paid parking garage. It was quick and easy to get in. There was no line at all.
Recommended Age Range:
Christy: My daughter is 6-years old and loved ALL of it! My husband and I also enjoyed it! This is great for all ages!
Victoria: My kids are 11 and 6. Ages 5 and up would be the best for this attraction. There is a lot of reading involved, as each display is explained. Younger kids may find some of the exhibits scary.
Time Recommended to Enjoy Experience:
Christy: We hung out for 2 hours and did everything!
Victoria: We spent 1.5 hours. I'd allow 2 hours total.
Features & Activities
Christy: There are many interactive attractions for all ages. There is the 4D theatre. This was awesome with the effects. The Odditorium has a bunch of oddities for all ages. The mirror maze was confusing in a great way for all of us. We also played a game like whack-a-mole. My husband beat us, but he always wins EVERYTHING.
Everything is unique from the Justin Bieber and Harry Potter made from candy to the interactive buzzer games. We enjoyed all of it. My favorite was the 4D movie. My daughter and husband loved the 4D and the mirror maze.
Victoria: The museum offers a 4D Moving Theater where we were able to watch two short films in 4D. They also have a Marvelous Mirror Maze, which is fun for any age. And lastly, there is is a Smash Dash Game, which was our favorite activity. This is a two-player game in which you race your opponent to hit the most buttons that light up on the wall.
Christy: There are a lot of restaurants, ice cream parlors, boat attractions, pretty water views and stores at the Harbor to enjoy. I recommend going early and hanging out at the harbor after your visit.
Victoria: The museum is attached to Harborplace, which offers a lot of options to add to your trip. There are shopping stores including H&M and the option of going to the The Gallery across the street, as well as options for food including Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and Hooters. After your visit, you can walk along the Inner Harbor, ride the paddle boats or water taxi or explore the historic ships.
Would Your Family Visit Again?
Christy: Yes! This will be a great place to bring family when they visit.
Victoria: Yes, we plan to visit again. We had a great time.
