Port Discovery hit a big milestone over the weekend… they welcomed their 5 millionth visitor!

Aryan Aravind, 3 ½ years old, of Rockville, MD was warmly greeted with a surprise reception by Museum educators and staff who celebrated his arrival with loud cheers, bubbles and plenty of high-fives! Aryan was accompanied by his mother, Meghana Chakravarthy. The family received an annual Port Discovery membership. This was Aryan and Meghana’s first visit to Port Discovery (but we have a feeling they’ll be back!).

Port Discovery is on a mission to help Baltimore area children learn through purposeful play. This year, they celebrate 20 years of providing the children and families with opportunities to enjoy powerful, purposeful play through interactive, hands-on exhibits, programs and events both in the Museum and in the community.

20 years. 5 million kids. We can’t even think about the math on that — it’s just a whole lotta learning and fun. 

Congrats, Port Discovery!
