LotteryThrough Late September

Baltimore Museum of Industry – 1415 Key Highway

The Baltimore Museum of Industries newest exhibit showcases the Maryland State Lottery’s important economic and social role in the 40 years since its conception. Spanning four decades, these artifacts and items will include images of early winners, contests and drawings, print and television ads, campaigns and slogans. Promotional materials and items from past to present will also be on display, along with an old drawing machine, prize wheel, giveaway items and an array of scratch-offs and games.

Visitors to the museum will learn many surprising and interesting facts about the Lottery’s history-from the controversial legislative process that took place to establish the Lottery more than 40 years ago to the complex processes that must occur daily behind the scenes of drawings today. The weekly lottery is certainly more than just picking numbers and visitors will see that from this exhibit. Ticket prices are $12 for adults, $9 for Seniors 62+, $7 for youth and students, and free for children 6 and under.
