Ways to Enjoy Living in Bethesda

KID Museum

Kids Can Learn About Science at the KID Museum

The KID Museum in Bethesda offers hands-on activities for elementary and middle school-aged children integrating art, science, and technology with cultural experiences. Visitors can experiment with a wide range of tools and materials, such as 3D printers, laser cutters, textiles, electronic circuits, video cameras, and more. Each weekend offers something new, providing unique hands-on learning experiences designed and facilitated by the professional Maker Educators and a team of Apprentices. Examples of past workshops include 3D Fidget Spinners, Harry Potter Scarves, Intro to Laser Printing, and Arduino Dice.

KID Museum is open to the public on the weekends with workshops in the Maker Studios, Open Build time, and over a dozen Open Explore activities. Hours are Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and general admission is $12 (one child and two adults). KID Museum’s entrance is behind Davis Library on the lower level, and there is free parking at the library.
