Baltimore has been reinventing itself as a tourist destination and the Lord Baltimore Hotel is sited well for many of its attractions.

The Baltimore Museum of Art, Walters Art Museum, American Visionary Art Museum, and Exhibits at School 33 Art Center are all accessible from our hotel. Of course, the Jewish Museum of Maryland may appeal to our family.

The National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, the Port Discovery Children’s Museum may be of special interest to those with children.

The Edgar Allen Poe grave is a magnet for some. There is a giant downtown library.

There’s a railroad museum, highlighting the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. John Forkner as a son of Southern Railways may have some commentary.

There is the Bromo Seltzer Tower Art Gallery and art district, Civil War sites and attractions (the USS Constellation, the Baltimore Civil War Museum, The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland, African History and Culture), and Fort McHenry National Monument. The Baltimore Museum of Industry, the Maryland Historical Society, and numerous other places with exhibits, collections and displays.

There is also a National Great Blacks in Wax Museum in the downtown area, 1601 East North, Baltimore which has winter hours Tuesday through Saturdays during our time in Baltimore. General admission for seniors are $14, adults are $15, and student and children are varying amounts.

Baltimore’s ghost tour is centered in Fells Point where we stayed the last time and probably features the Hotel, where we slept, apparently with ghosts, during our last Baltimore excursion.

The Inner Harbor has vessels to take you from shore-to-shore.

The Charm City Circulator goes from Inner Harbor and City Center to various locations of interests for those who don’t have cars. Oren Hirsch has been working with the BaltimoreLink bus system for a couple years, so if you want to take the buses, he can probably help you find your way!

If weather permits, Clifton Park in East Baltimore and Cylburn Arboretum in North Baltimore along with the civic works, Clifton Mansion and East Baltimore and Carroll Mansion and the Carrie Murray Nature Center maybe places where someone can enjoy some green space in November. There are numerous markets throughout the city, including Lexington Market, which bills itself as a quintessential Baltimore experience.

The Rawlings Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is a great option for some indoor nature.

WikiTravel Baltimore

It is still a little early to find our what is going to be available throughout Baltimore if anyone is interested in a live performance. Check back here in late summer / early fall and we will try to put some updates here!

The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) is free except for special exhibits. Over Thanksgiving there will be a show by Mark Bradford who is always interesting and usually provocative. Also, Baltimore’s inimitable native son, John Waters, will be featured in a special exhibit there.

The Maryland Historical Society has a number of interesting exhibits which can vary based on when we are there. There is a charge for admission to non-members but there are number of free days that are advertised. Maritime objects, etc. not all are on display at the same time. The Walters Art Museum has just opened a facility called Mt. Vernon Place. The opening day was June 16th and has added One West which was known as the Hackerman House, a 19th century mansion next to the Walters. It has been revamped to highlight local arts and it also free. One West is part of the Walters, which is also free.

Printed pamphlets providing information on Baltimore’s attractions can be ordered, if anyone is interested.
