Heard about this through TA. A wonderful tour. Actual tour doesn't take much time, but appreciated the patience of the docent in answering questions. The library room was my favorite. Artwork and artifacts interesting to see. Once again reminded that people with 'real' money weren't adversely impacted by Depression.

We had driven by this museum for years and finally stopped in. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the mansion and the collections within it. A nice way to while away a summer afternoon.

We almost skipped this in favor of a comics museum, and boy are we glad we didn't. The house was given to Johns Hopkins University following the owners' deaths. Besides the house being huge and gorgeous inside, it is chock full of artistic treasures. The tour was led by a junior at Johns Hopkins, and she was one of the... More

Stunning Gilded Age gem. About an hour away from Washington, DC and worth the trip. The home is beyond wonderful. A great collection of Duffy's, Modigliani's. A theatre and gallery designed by Leon Bakst of the Ballet Russe fame. More important - a glimpse as to how Alice and John Garrett lived and loved their life. I enjoyed every second... More

From the Evergreen Museum website...they say it best: Housed in a former Gilded Age mansion surrounded by Italian-style gardens, Evergreen Museum & Library is at once an intimate collection of fine and decorative arts, rare books and manuscripts assembled by two generations of the philanthropic Garrett family, and a vibrant, inspirational venue for contemporary artists. In the mid-19th century, when... More

We were in Baltimore for a high school reunion and won the pass to Homewood/Evergreen as a door prize :) we read the brochure on both and decided on Evergreen for a Sunday tour at noon. The tour guides were Johns Hopkins students...very knowledgable and articulate about Evergreen...and we enjoyed our 'private' tour!! Lots of art and collectibles...a very interesting... More

Special dinner for my husband's professional group was held here. Alas we were too large a group to visit the lovely main house, but the arrangements and execution for the dinner in the carriage house were outstanding. Intimate atmosphere, expert attentive but unobtrusive service. Cocktails with appetizers like asparagus wrapped in prosciutto were served in the tented entryway, followed by... More

I'll start off by saying we visited on a Wednesday afternoon, and were thus the only visitors on the tour. We ended up with two tour guides. One (Sara) who has been giving tours at Evergreen for decades, and one (Christine) who is fairly new to Evergreen (but no stranger to art and artifacts). The tour ended up being about... More

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!
