Cool, Unlike-School Holiday Gifts from the Maryland Science Center
You learn something new every day, such as… you can learn something new every day with unique, fun and educational holiday gifts from the Maryland Science Center. The museum’s Science Store has thousands of imaginative and creative gifts for curious kids and budding scientists alike. And with a Maryland Science Center membership or gift certificate to Camp MSC, parents and grandparents can offer children one-of-a-kind experiences that extend well after the tree is hauled to the curb and that new toy has lost its charm.
The Science Store
Build it. Design it. Construct It. Understand it. The Science Stores offers interactive answers to every “how does…?” and “what is…?” that inquisitive children ask. Hands-on kits explain everything from how to make ice cream and perfume, to how rockets soar through space - there are more than 10 different models to make of the solar system and more than a dozen constructions of the human body. A wide range of high-quality telescopes and easy-to-use star projectors bring the vastness of the night sky into the living room.
The Science Store is open during Maryland Science Center hours:
Tuesday - Thursday: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Friday: 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM
Saturday: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Sunday: 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
The Maryland Science Center is located at 601 Light Street at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
Give the Experience of Camp
What better way to bring joy during a cold winter holiday than the promise of warm weather exploring. A gift certificate to the Maryland Science Center’s Camp MSC offers more than a one, two or four week camp experience; it keeps children active, engaged and learning during the summer. Camp MSC programs include week-long sessions about dinosaurs, wizardry, extreme weather and robots.
Sign ‘em up! For information about Camp MSC gift certificates, call 410-545-2982.
Free Admission All Year Long
Want to be thanked all year-long? A gift membership at the Maryland Science Center includes one year of free admission to the museum, discounts on theater shows and special events, and free admission to more than 250 other science museums around the country.
For information on gift memberships, call the Membership Office at 410-545-5981.
But Wait… There’s More!
More ideas and more educational gift giving inspiration can be found throughout the holidays on the Maryland Sciene Center’s Facebook page. The “Holidays” tab on the page will include constantly changing ideas for everyone on a gift list – from the newly-exploring tot and the textbook-adverse student to the know-it-all Uncle who could stand to learn a thing or two.
