Chesapeake Children’s Museum





Chesapeake Children’s Museum

Your older children and the adults in your family or party will love the exciting water sports or the history-filled walking tours through Annapolis. But what do you do for the younger children who are looking to join in on the fun too? You take them to the Chesapeake Children’s Museum, of course!   Here is what they can enjoy during your next trip to Annapolis:

A Fun Learning Environment

Everything is hands-on at Chesapeake Children’s Museum. There is a 10-foot boat and dock for traveling the seven seas, live animals to see and touch, hand puppets and dress-ups for make-believe, a pretend doctor’s office, and so much more!  Since 1992, Chesapeake Children’s Museum has been serving children who visit and who live in the Annapolis area. The Chesapeake Children’s Museum is located in a former radio station building surrounded by a five-acre Creekside park. Outside there are ponds to explore plus picnic tables and a nature trail.
