This place sits on UM campus. Visit by appt only!! So you must call before you arrive to schedule appt. No front desk other than the security guard and they will call the dentist down and he tells you where to go, after that you are on your own. It was fine, plenty to see and hear, good for an...

Great place to take a school group. We were the only ones in the museum- you take a self guided tour (by appt only). There were a lot of interesting things to see. It's def. more for the 6-7 year and up crowd. There is one hands on display but the rest is not much touching. Recommend on a cold... More

We took a tour and our home school group was captivated! Our kids were on the younger side. You will get more out of it older elementary edge and up.

The museum is by appointment only, so we called in advance to set up a time. Nice, self-guided tour through the museum. Lots of interactive exhibits to make it kid friendly. A nice stop if you're looking for a low key activity.

We called the museum before we went just to be on the safe side. The recording gave the address and the hours of operation, but made no mention of the fact that they are ONLY open by appointment!!! I find this completely infuriating and ridiculous. When we got there, they had a note on the door that as of December... More

Son had seen this museum on TV, talking about George Washington's false teeth, so wanted to check it out. The displays were interesting, had several hands on stations for kids, and video displays of funny shows and commercials. Only took us about an hour and a half to do.

The museum is small but it has an interesting collection. Adults might be interested in the historical aspects of dentistry (including tubes of toothpaste and toothbrushes from long ago) and the kids will enjoy all the hands on activities and the interactive computer exhibits. The small gift shop sells humorous items like bacon flavored toothpaste and pickle flavored dental floss.... More

This museum is compact, in excellent condition, & well thought-out. There are many historical artifacts, such as antique dental instruments & chairs. There is also good use of multi-media. There are several interactive exhibits geared toward children. Oddly, there is no exhibit specifically about cavity formation. The museum is across from the Univ of Maryland Medical Center & next to... More
