Through June 27th, All Maryland Students Are Admitted Free

Due to Covid restrictions surrounding school field trips, The Maryland Science Center has made the decision to allow all Maryland Students including Homeschool Students (Pre-K - 12th Grade) to visit the museum free of charge during the school year. Free admission is available any day that the Science Center is open to the public including weekends. Maryland students must show a school ID, a report card, or proof of residency. A parent driver’s license showing an address in Maryland is also valid for gaining free admission for their children. The free admission program applies to students who visit with their family or as part of an organized group. Free admission for organized groups is available as long as groups maintain our 1 chaperone per 10 students ratio. All chaperones must have a valid Maryland ID. Anyone taking advantage of the free student admission program must register in advance using the link below.
