A New Port of Call for Kids!

Port Discovery Children's Museum

Port Discovery Children's Museum is about to unveil new exhibits to engage a next generation of kids. From a four-story, spiral slide to a nearly life-size ship, visitors can take on roles that make them the storytellers. Bryn Parchman, the museum’s CEO, tells us kids learn best when they’re having fun, and why connecting with Baltimore’s young and old is crucial to Port Discovery’s goals.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
