April Showers Bring Fun Rainy Day Activities in Baltimore


Baltimore is jam-packed with activities that are fun for everyone all year long, but these ideas are especially great for this rainy spring weather.

You know the saying: “April showers bring May flowers.” Well, it’s happening. The rainy spring season is upon us. Fortunately, for Baltimore-area residents, the sun is starting to peek out through the clouds for some warmer weather. However, it’s impossible to really enjoy the outdoors when there’s a deluge of rain outside your window. Maybe you’ve run out of exciting ideas for indoor activities. If you’re a Baltimorean who’s looking to get yourself and your children out of the house on a rainy weekend, you’re in luck. Although Baltimore is jam-packed with activities that are fun for everyone all year long, these ideas are especially great for this warm yet rainy spring weather. Don’t stay cooped up inside! Enjoy what Baltimore has to offer with these exciting, local, indoor activities.

Baltimore Museum of Art

Baltimore is full of hidden gems, but one of the most precious of our hidden gems is the Baltimore Museum of Art. Children of all ages are welcome to see the priceless works of art that the BMA has in its permanent collection, as well as the pieces that are there temporarily. If is it not too rainy, get yourself and your children in your rain gear, and check out the beautiful sculpture garden right outside the museum.

Charles Theatre

The Charles has been a Baltimore staple for decades. In fact, you’ve probably been there already on a date night. This spring, consider taking the whole family to see a movie that everyone will enjoy. The old-fashioned Baltimore theatre creates a nostalgic atmosphere that even your little ones will love.

National Aquarium

How lucky are we to have the National Aquarium right in our very own Inner Harbor? This amazing rainy-day activity has something that everyone will enjoy. The shark area is an experience your kids will not soon forget. The jellyfish museum is a delight for everyone who sees it. Try to catch the dolphin show, and see if your family can sit in the “splash zone.” Your kids will be having fun while they learn about the curiosities of our oceans.
