See famous sports uniforms and memorabilia at new Port Discovery exhibit

Kids can check out uniforms and memorabilia of Maryland sports teams at Port Discovery Children's Museum's new exhibit called “The Locker Room.”

Port Discovey Locker RoomThe new exhibit at the Baltimore museum features six colorful lockers that display uniforms from the Ravens and Orioles and college teams such as the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays and Maryland Terrapins. The lockers also display important team photos and items such as bats, balls, shoes and more. Near the lockers, kids can try on an umpire uniform and design plays on a magnetic tic-tac-toe board.

The new display is located adjacent to the Kick It Up! exhibit, which encourages kids to get fit by playing in an indoor soccer stadium complete with electronic scoreboard and goals. The special sports items were donated by Sports Legends Museum, which closed a year ago, as well as by the teams represented.

“Children will love seeing their favorite teams spotlighted at the museum,” says Port Discovery President and CEO Bryn Parchman. “The installation is a perfect fit for our museum as staying active and healthy is one of our core initiatives. This is a fun way to showcase Maryland athletes who are great role models for our children of healthy and active living.”
