Rose Hill Manor in Frederick is a hands on museum showing how the life would have been in the 19th century. They are visited by lots of school groups and there were lots of 4th graders touring when I was there. I enjoyed the fact that they have designed the rooms in the house with children and education in mind.... More

This was the retirement home of the first governor of Maryland, and a close friend of George Washingto., our first President. The home has been recently restored, and is open for visitors, as are the grounds. Guided tours are available. The guides are in period costumes, and trained to be very knowledgeable about the history of the place. Seasonal festivals... More

This was a fantastic day out. The museum was full of old toys, clothes, kitchen utensils, musical instruments and there were signs every where saying try out these things and see how the folk lived here. The kids had a great time with the toys and the adults too enjoyed reminiscing about some of the toys they had in their... More

The park seems to be well kept and clean. The house and outbuildings were also well kept. We enjoyed the tour of the house and learning all about how life was back in time.

Its wasn't a bad tour but wasn't anything extraordinary either. The docent was very nice and took my son & me to the carriage house which had numerous carriages - well worth the request to see it.

This is a really nice place to spend a day. They have a Civil War reenactment, which usually takes place the second weekend in July every year. It is a great place to take your family and learn about history. There are food vendors and lots to do.

Rose Hill Manor is a beautifully preserved building with a very family friendly feel. Kids can touch and play with things in the house and learn how people lived 100 years ago. A nice thing to do when in Frederick.

This is great for children as there are many activities for everyone. The house is so interesting and the grounds are beautiful. It's a fun way to spend a few hours entertaining your children. Adults will appreciate the history of the house.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the home and grounds...........and there was not one child in our group! Although Rose Hill Manor is promoted as a child-oriented site, adults will also enjoy it. Our costumed tour guide led us though both the beautiful home and various outbuildings located on the grounds. Among the buildings we were permitted to enter were... More
