About the Maryland Historical Society:
As the oldest continuously operating cultural institution in the state, the Maryland Historical Society’s collections include more than 350,000 objects and 7 million books and documents, ranging from pre-settlement to the present day and representing virtually every aspect of Maryland history and life.
Exhibits tell the story of Maryland’s colonial start in St. Mary’s City to the state’s role in the Revolutionary War and War of 1812. You can travel through a Time Tunnel and experience 3-D videos that lead you back to 1861 to learn more about Maryland’s divided loyalties during the Civil War. And be sure to see the Civil Rights photography exhibit that documents Maryland’s struggle for racial equality from 1930 – 1960.
The Maryland Historical Society does not sell food, but they provide a lunch room free of charge to onsite programs.
