Mount Clare Museum House, Baltimore

3.9
#14 of 19 in Historic Sites in Baltimore
Owned by Maryland and operated by the B&O Railroad Museum and the National Society of the Colonial Dames in America in the State of Maryland, Mount Clare is one of the oldest houses in Baltimore. It tells the story of Charles Carroll, barrister, his wife, Margaret Tilghman Carroll, their family, and the slaves and indentured servants who lived there. Carroll objects furnish the house in addition to other 18th and 19th century antiques. The museum not only emphasizes those who lived in the house, Carrolls and slaves/servants, but also reminds the visitor of the house's use by others, including the Union Army during the Civil War and a German social club at the end of the 1800s.

  • Mount Clare Museum House is a gem hidden in plain site! This is one of the few historic homes in the Baltimore area I had never been to, but it is definitely worth a visit. It’s especially beautiful around Christmas when it’s all decorated for the holidays with greenery everywhere. We enjoyed the educational film and the tour from our passionate docent. There’s a cute little gift shop and the views of downtown Baltimore are amazing.
  • A great experience to learn some Baltimore history.
