I have lived in Baltmore 30 years and had driven by this place hundreds of time. I knew it existed because I saw the sign. What I did not know was how wonderful this place is. Stop and take a tour. You will be impressed from the gold bathroom, the Tiffany glass, the rare books in the library, and overall... More

This is an interesting and beautiful historic home with period furnishings and accessories displayed throughout. It is decorated at Christmas and offers different events during the holiday season. The vintage sleigh outside offers a great photo opportunity!

My wife loves looking at historic residences so she pulled out a review from The Washington Post that was published in March 2012 and found the Evergreen Museum & Library in Baltimore. We had a very good tour guide who was both knowledgeable and personable. The house was amazing as were the artifacts within. We really enjoyed our visit.

I've lived in DC for 40 years and thought I knew most of the great attractions in Baltimore. Boy was I wrong. Yesterday, through Tripadvisor, I discovered, and visited, this amazing place. The charming and informed hour-long tour was way too short. This Gilded Age house, built by Robber Baron John Garrett, head of the B&O Railroad, makes you think.... More

We were part of a meeting of L3 in Washington that included meetings with faculty at Johns Hopkins followed by dinner at the Evergreen House and Museum now owned by JH but just next to Loyola University. The museum is a true gem and former home of the Garrett family who donated the home (husband the house, followed by wife... More

Evergreen House & Museum has to be one of the most under-rated attractions (for adults!) that Baltimore has to offer. Tours leave on the hour (you must be on a tour -- can't wander the house on your own), and can last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on how many questions you ask your...

In all the years that my daughter attended Loyola University, we never went next door to see the Evergreen Museum. We recently visited since she is now an alumni and we were so thrilled with this beautiful little museum. It sits atop a high hill as a beautiful mansion. We went when the house was decorated for Christmas and it... More

A mansion with a personality. Parquet floors, tiffany lights, antique pottery, and a private theatre stage. The house used to have a bowling alley. The highlight for me was the library with a view of the tiered gardens. An eclectic collection awaits. A fun and interesting hour and a half. They have a gift shop. Staff very nicely allowed us...
