Play it Forward 

Thank you for Playing it Forward at Port Discovery Children's Museum! 

In May 2018, more than 300 of our friends, supporters and community members joined us for Play it Forward 2018 and helped us celebrate 20 years of Powerful, Purposeful Play!

On behalf of Port Discovery's Board of Directors, staff, and the children we serve, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the sponsors and visitors that supported Play it Forward and Port Discovery Children's Museum.

We were thrilled to honor Delegate Adrienne Jones with the 2018 Great Friend to Kids Award for her ongoing dedicated support of the Museum for many years, as well as her tireless work to remove obstacles and create opportunities that allow ALL of Maryland’s children to shine.

Thanks to all of you for helping us celebrate 20 years of Powerful, Purposeful Play – and to publicly launch our $10.5 Million Capital Campaign, Playing Today, Leading Tomorrow, to bring exciting and transformational exhibits to Port Discovery!

Stay tuned for news on our 2019 Play It Forward Event!
