In addition to being a Minor Basilica, this church is also a National Shrine, Marian Shrine, National Historic Landmark, and Co-Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. We visited this place on a labor day weekend (a Monday). Unfortunately for us, there was a service going on and there were no tours being offered at that time. We roamed around the church, even went inside it for few minutes. Its absolutely stunning from inside. I would suggest people to schedule their visit so that they are able to get a free tour.
