This could be a much improved place for children if they had some funding and more volunteers. I wouldn't call it a museum, but i would call it a wonderful play space for young children. It desperately needs some TLC. Cudos to the volunteers who...More

I have to agree with the other reviewers who say this isn't really a museum. It's a play space, and a small one. It would be as if I turned my house into "centers"/play spaces We went there for Maryland Day, so we only paid...More

Very enjoyable for small children. Lots of things for them to do with hands on. Can keep them occupied for quite awhile and learn respect for living creatures.

This is not actually a museum. There does not appear to be anything of educational or historical value. It is a collection of used toys and dress-up clothes that, frankly, I wouldn't want my child to touch. Being so close to the Chesapeake and given...More
