Downtown Discovery Days, formerly known as Dollar Days in Downtown Baltimore 2022 are January 3-14, 2022.

What are Downtown Discovery Days?

They are the days where participating Downtown Baltimore museums offer admission reduced price or for free.

As of this posting, there are a number of places participating. Please note that with Covid cases on the rise, things could change, so check with each venue prior to visiting.

We have been to the Maryland Science Center with friends for dollar days years ago, 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.
