While the older kids are still in school, take your toddler to a museum that offers engaging, fun exhibits for younger children.
Several Baltimore and Washington area museums have special exhibits designed for infants and toddlers to learn as well.
Most of these museums even offer free admission for kids under 2 years old.
Explore alongside your child during Toddler Time at the B&O Railroad Museum where kids can hear stories, make crafts and ride a kiddie train to Choo Choo Blueville.
At the Maryland Science Center little ones can enjoy the Kids Room—a special room for 0- to 8-year-olds, where kids can send boats down the river channel in water play, operate the fish cam in the submarine, dress up like a turtle, and send messages through a pneumatic tube on the ceiling.
