Dollar Days in Downtown Baltimore 2019 are Saturday, December 7 & Sunday, December 8.

What are Dollar Days?

Technically Dollar or Less Days, they are the days where participating Downtown Baltimore museums offer admission for $1 or less!

This year, fourteen venues are participating.

We have been to the Maryland Science Center with friends for dollar days, and had a really great time! Yes, it was was crowded, but it was neat to see so many families there. Our kids got to do the activities they wanted to do, any everyone was patient and seemed to be enjoying themselves!

The participating museums from the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore’s website and the times/days they are $1 or less (some are only one day, so please make plans accordingly!):
