We went yesterday and we loved it. G have 14, 7, 4 year olds. All three found it interesting. So much to do and touch and play. A wonderful, well informed young top guide in period dress spent the whole afternoon with us. My seven year old proclaimed, this is like a museum, but better!

I love the old houses and love to see people dressed in period clothing. The downsides is the museum could be open more often.

This was a great hands-on touch museum for children. I had 2 preschool children with me and they thoroughly enjoyed playing with many wonderful colonial items. Each room, both upstairs and downstairs had an amazing variety of opportunities for fun and learning. The two staff ladies who were there were friendly and helpful. There were buildings outside that you could... More

Visited for the 1st time back in May 2014 to attend the 2nd annual Festa Italiana. The parking was free, but there was an entrance fee of $10/person to get into the festival. It was for a good cause though, the Habitat of Humanity of Frederick County. Soon after entering we got to exchange our American dollars for fake lira... More

Thomas Johnson, first Governor of Maryland and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States died in this house, owned by his daughter and son-in-law. His niece was married to President John Quincy Adams. The lovely historic house and grounds are well worth a visit.

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
