A new Playseum will be opening in the Westfield Annapolis Mall, Annapolis, MD.   Expected GRAND OPENING will be late August with free general admission for one week in the Annapolis location for anyone coming in with a child. For more information contact us at


The PLAYSEUM is a place to build good family memories that engage all five senses.  We are a Children's  Book and Toy Store in the design of a Kid-Size City, with hands-on fun throughout 12 different rooms called "cityshops". Want to know more click on CITYSHOPS above and watch some videos of us or click on the following articles and read all about us through a parent's eyes. 

In brief: 
Parent & child can explore the 12 different cityshops of the PLAYSEUM together.  They range from soft blocks and giant Legos to mini manicures, pretend grocery shopping, petting an animal in a live pet shop or creating something in the art shop or baking something in the bakery!  We have activities galore for everyone—babies –to-tweens to –parents—making the PLAYSEUM a must-do for the whole family.

Put the errands on hold, turn off that smart phone, and spend some time exploring, creating and "adventuring" with with your child.  At the Playseum you’ll enter an enchanted land where just being together is magic, a land impervious to the demands of everyday life -horrible summer humidity or the harsh DC winters. 

Kids love the “CityShops” created for interactive play that encourages them to enjoy hands-on fun. Parents can play along, enjoy storytime together, and watch as new friends are made.

The Playseum is more than just a place to play, it’s a ‘city’ in itself where every book holds a new adventure and all things are seen through the eyes of a child - no matter how old. ENJOY this time you have with them, before long they’ll be asking you for the keys to the car!

Simple- $9 per person adult or child, unless the child is under 11 months then they are free. This gives you an all day admission to all of the "pretend" city shops as well as the four "real" city shop areas, story times, petting of the animals in the pet shop and a free self serve art project in the Art shop! 

Customize your visit: 
Be sure to buy at least a few PLAYSEUM dollars upon entry 1 for 1 and get the full experience.  
Playseum currency is definitely fun to have if your kids are 3 years and older. The average "Playseum activity that is done with staff is $3.  We want your kids to learn how to spend wisely and budget their money.  If you buy at the door upon entry get 25 for $20. They never expire and even snacks, drinks, books and items int he gift shop can be purchased with Playseum bucks. There is a comprehensive list of items to be boughts with bucks; just click on Buzz Books. 

All PLAYSEUM dollars activities are led by our friendly staff at the soap bar, the art shop or in the bakery.  The purpose of these activites are to engage all five senses and stimulate parent-child interaction. They are always done on demand, no reservations are needed. 

PLEASE BE SURE TO VISIT OUR CALENDAR page to check for special events, times and closures. 

It is firmly believed by Ms. Gina that when creativity collides with laughter and wisdom is applied good memories are born.





Our Cityshops!

CityShops are so much fun and set up to expand your child's imagination. Your child can make a pretend pizza, shop for groceries, or pet an animal at the pet shop...there is so much to see. We've just named a few.

Our Bookstore!

Each CityShop has several books that are related to that room. For example, you might find a children's cookbook in our bakery or a "Fancy Nancy" book in our beauty salon. Every book you see is available for purchase or you can just enjoy reading them to your child during your visit.

Story Time!

Our ONE scheduled event each day is our story time. Story times run for about 15 minutes each Monday - Friday at 11am on Saturdays 11am, 2pm and 5pm and on Sundays at 2pm and 5pm.

There is more fun!!!

You may want to purchase playseum money to do some of our "above and beyond" activities to enjoy more interactive fun with your child!
