Museum Monday: Maryland Historical Society

April 18th, 2011 by WLOY Staff

The Maryland Historical Society is full of antique American gems. Currently the museum is showing the exhibit: Maryland’s National Treasures, which was collaboration between the Maryland Historical Society and Maryland State Archives. It features swords, uniforms and life-size portraits of American Revolutionary heroes. The Historical Society is also currently showing With an Artistic Eye: Folk Art at the MHS, which displays history through painting, sculpture, jewelry and furniture.

The MHS is additionally hosting the most comprehensive Civil War exhibit in MD, which includes 3-D videos and personal stories. It’s their largest Civil War exhibit yet!

In addition to these current pieces, the core exhibits are sure to bring enjoyment and educate. Such as Nipper’s Toyland, an exhibit displaying 200 years worth of Maryland children’s toys! You may not find Buzz Light year in the toy collection but a trip over to the Maryland Historical Society is certainly worth a visit.

Address: 201 West Monument St.
Hours: 10AM to 5PM Wednesday-Saturday
