The site honors and interprets the contributions of African-Americans in the development of Baltimore’s maritime industry, while preserving one of the city’s oldest extant waterfront industrial buildings.

  • This museum is a small waterfront treasure and definitely worth seeing if you have an hour. The entrance fee of $5 is very inexpensive, making it accessible to most, and street parking is abundant. They ask you to watch a 10 minute video in the lobby prior to viewing the exhibit, and the voices of Charles Dutton and Tim Reid, as Frederick Douglass and Isaac Myers respectively, do a fine job placing the museum in its historical context.
  • What an amazing location in the Inner Harbor, history combined with good food, and a beautiful event space. Go see the museum and have dinner at Ampersea! You will not be disappointed. Parking is a flat rate, currently $10, right next door.
