Chesapeake Children's Museum

★★☆☆☆
This facility is more like a well-equipped playroom than a museum.

Words cannot describe my disappointment in this so-called 'museum'. I took my grandchildren (ages 7 and 9). Place... dirty, toys old, more a rundown daycare, certainly NOT a place for ALL AGES as indicated in their website. Tanks so dirty that you could not even see what was inside them. Waterman's exhibit (a joke) was a wooden boat to play on...nothing more. Wildlife consisted a poor rabbit in a dirty cage. A couple of turtles that could be touched, but inadequate hand sanitation available. The 'around the world' display consisted of a few cards written in Spanish for a few objects. This place was worst than words can describe. Aerial view of place on website made it look like it was in a beautiful woodland setting where in fact it was at the end of a neighborhood. It was nothing more than a rundown trailer. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.

I went to this "museum" based on the website and the listing in the Annapolis and the Chesapeake Visitors Guide. Talk about false advertising! It is listed as a "hands-on museum for children of all ages". It should be a crime that they call themselves a museum. There were no exhibits, only old, hand-me-down toys. The place was dirty and disgusting. It is geared to toddlers but I would be afraid to let a toddler play there because of the filth. There was an admission deal that if you brought school supplies that there would be no admission price. The receptionist didn't even get off the phone or greet us as she took our supplies. We were dumbfounded by what we saw. I should have gone with my first instinct when I saw the place and never set foot inside. I would give this a zero rating if I could!

This is not a typical museum. It is geared to kids and has several themed rooms for the kids to play in. They are encouraged to play with the costumes and create with art supplies. It is a great place to spend some time with your child learning about turtles. They have arts classes during the week for younger kids.
