Chesapeake Children's Museum
The Chesapeake Children's Museum is another great rainy/winter day spot in the DC area. It's really geared towards kids under 5 years old with blocks and a train table, more baby dolls than you can imagine, a dress up room that is bursting with choices and a craft center that has all the supplies you need to create a masterpiece. This is the perfect place to go and let your wee one play while you sit on a bench, an arm's length away and read a book. Invite some friends to meet you there and have a playdate. The cost is $4 bucks a person but if you have a family membership to another children's museum that is part of the ACM Reciprocal Program, like Port Discovery, it's free to get in.
