  • Very cool to learn the history behind our NA, and see the house where inspiring flag was made! A must for all Patriots!  more »
  • We all know about Betsy Ross, but you've never known about Mary Pickersgill. You will soon! Betsy may have made the first flag, but Mary made the one that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star ...  more »
  • The house was closed, but the outside exhibit was interesting... The plaques and info gave us a good idea of what was going on....cool. (Not sure we needed to go in.) Really glad we stopped by. Again:...  more »

  • This is a diamond in the rough. It feels like this is a place that only gets attention on field trip day, but should be packed regularly. Pay a little extra and get the movie, house tour and museum access. We expected ho-hum, but the passion of the docents and history right before you are well worth it.
  • Interesting to hear the story of the person who made the flag (Mary Pickersgill) and walk into the home of where it was made. Your visit will not take that long to complete the home tour and museum. I'd say the average person will complete both in about an hour or longer, a quick hit and it's not that far from the Inner Harbor. The interpretive stations were interesting and it told many facts about the person/people (Pickersgill) who created the star spangled banner I did not know.
  • The history revealed and the historic buildings and grounds tucked right in the middle of Baltimore, quite a treasure. Went for a wedding and everything was totally unexpected in the best possible ways!
  • Great history about the 'forgotten war' of 1812.
  • I personally haven't been inside myself but the tour guide I had spoke a lot about the flag outside the house. It was very interesting being in that area.

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
