At this kid-powered museum with three floors of exhibits, children of all ages — though mostly ages 2 to 10 — can cross the Nile to explore ancient Egypt, crawl through a kitchen drain to solve a mystery in Miss Perception’s Mystery House, and climb the three-story-high Kidworks. Walt Disney Company Imagineers designed many of the exhibits. Buy groceries and fill up your car’s tank at the convenience store and stop at the diner. Wonders of Water is wet but it sure is fun. Story times for toddlers are offered Tuesday through Friday at 11:30am; Saturday at 11am, noon, and 1pm; and Sunday at 3:30pm. There are also changing exhibits every quarter. Ranked among the top 5 children’s museums in the U.S., Port Discovery offers 3 floors of hands-on, educational exhibits and ever-changing programs for children ages 0-10.

About one hour from Towson is our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. Sites to visit there include the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center (1 1st Street Southeast Washington, DC), The Smithsonian Institution (1000 Jefferson Drive Southwest Washington, DC), and the Lincoln Memorial (2 Lincoln Memorial Circle Northwest Washington, DC), among many other familiar and amazing locations. Perhaps a little ways out, but close enough to consider while you’re visiting.
