Tour

A docent led tour by our own Bev Rosen on the unique exhibit, “Discover Maryland”. Who are Marylanders, why are they so obsessed with their flag, and what does duckpin bowling have to do with the Baltimore Orioles? This exhibit explores how Maryland and its people have changed since its founding in 1634. Learn how the dynamic geography of the state drove its industry, population, and the identity of Marylanders and how the arts and culture of Maryland reflect on its past. For traveling visitors and lifelong Marylanders, Discover Maryland shows there is much to uncover about Maryland. You will see original tobacco tools, pieces of glass, a clay food vessel made by indigenous people dating 500 – 200 BC, jazz musicians Eubie Blake’s traveling reed organ, and the electric sign from Baltimore’s former Club Hippo. Other current exhibits: Furniture in Maryland Life, Divided Voices: Maryland in the Civil War, Intimate Expressions: Personal Diaries of Maryland Life; a peak into the new Civil Rights Exhibit (featuring Henderson photos); Flickering Treasures: Rediscovering Baltimore’s Forgotten Movie Theaters; and Wild and Untamed: Dunton’s Discovery of Baltimore Album Quilts.
