We went at 12:00 on a Saturday and had the whole place to ourselves. It was very nice. There is a parking garage right across the street.

Groupon gave good idea to visit the house & museum when I was searching for things to do in Baltimore. Video helped visualize the time and events. Museum is small and all reading. Tour of Mary's house is short. The price of the Groupon went down after I purchased mine and used it. Not many things in gift shop. Cashier did not give us the 20% off as promised on Groupon. Didn't realize till after got home to PA and saw follow-up email from using Groupon. We were the only ones in the gift shop at the time.

From Our Editors

The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House was built in 1793, originally owned by the Young-Pickersgill family. Mary Pickersgill, maker of the Star-Spangled Banner Flag, is among the historical figures portrayed. Mary and her family?including her mother, Rebecca Young, and her apprentice, Grace Wisher?describe life in the 19th century and how Mary stitched the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key's poem and the national anthem.

After exploring the house on 30- to 40-minute self-guided or docent-led tours, guests can learn about America's defense of the Chesapeake Bay against the British navy, which culminated in the battle that inspired Key's verse. The first floor's permanent exhibition gallery focuses on that defense with artifacts such as a drum used by an American soldier during the bombardment of Ft. McHenry. Kid attendees, meanwhile, can head over to the Discovery Gallery to whip up a pretend meal at a replica of the Flag House kitchen or design their own flag to string up on the gallery's flagpole.
