Maryland Science Center

The striking glass, steel and concrete structure on the Inner Harbor houses the Maryland Science Center with five storeys of interactive exhibits, an IMAX theatre, the world-famous Davis Planetarium and an observatory. The Maryland Academy of Sciences is one of the USA's oldest scientific institutions, dating from 1797, and the institution remains focused on education. There are imaginative and hands-on displays ranging from astronomy and space travel, to dinosaurs and general science experiments. 'Your Body: The Inside Story' exhibition explores the biological world inside a human being and the challenges and advances in health science through interactive exhibits are the focus of BodyLink, while Newton's Alley offers dozens of hands-on experiments to provide insight into light, magnetism, mechanics, sight, and sound. The planetarium runs programs with stargazing at night and sungazing during the day through the observatory telescope. Other popular attractions include The Kids Room and the National Touring Exhibit.
