Museums & Attractions


Looking for something to do? Baltimore has a lot for visitors in the way of museums, galleries, attractions and historical places of interest.

Baltimore’s most popular attractions are the National Aquarium and the Maryland Science Center. Both are convenient to the Inner Harbor and are…okay. Sure, the fishes are pretty. But with admission prices and lines approaching those of a theme park, families may appreciate something different, something less crowded.

Visitors willing to explore beyond the Inner Harbor can find a lot to do, often cheap or free.

    Hello–about 15 years ago I was in a University of Maryland School of Medicine building in Baltimore that had a collection of medical oddities–conjoined twins, hairballs, misshapen body parts preserved in fluid, etc. I would like to revisit that collection but cannot remember which building it was in. I believe ASG Architects (in Baltimore) either renovated the building or designed it.
    Thank you,

    I am trying to get information on a museum that I saw on television which stated it was located in the State Medical Examiners Office. Can you either email or call me and give me information on this? Thank you.
