Maryland Historical Society

Since 1844, Maryland Historical Society has kept residents connected to their state's heritage by publishing educational books and a quarterly magazine. These days, its museum brings that archived history to life with more than 350,000 objects, most notably the manuscript of Francis Scott Key's "The Star-Spangled Banner" written in his own handwriting. Guests can also marvel at artifacts ranging from 900 pieces of furniture made between 1634 and 2000 to more than 2,000 paintings, including seven by Joshua Johnson, America's first professional African American portrait painter. Meanwhile, its Civil War exhibit occupies more than 5,000 square feet with 3-D video presentations. The society also sponsors extensive educational programs that enlighten young students with field trips, plus adult programs that include lectures, concerts, and symposia.

It was great.

Take your time. Lots of interesting pieces of maryland history I did not know!
Mary S. · April 10, 2015
Allow one to two hours at least to really see the place. Great exhibits on Civil War, War of 1812, and a Baltimore woman who was the sister-in-law, at least briefly, to Napoleon Bonaparte.
