“Warm, welcoming staff at new visitors center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Great first stop in this lovely city. The staff was very welcoming and noted that parking ticket could be validated for 3 free hours at the center. They recommended the short movie to introduce us to Frederick and Frederick County - nice. They provided maps and directions to the sites we wanted to see. Great - thanks City of Frederick.

“Well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

A simple, yet well done display of Fredericks history, to include a movie room for learning about the role of Frederick during the civil war. Lots of brochures, area maps as well as friendly and eager staff to guide you in the right directions and answer any questions. Easy parking.

“New Visitors Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Stopped in to get a map and some info about Fredrick. The recommended walking tour. Mentioned that could park near by lot for free on weekends. Recommended walking over to parking ramp and take elevator to top floor for view of Fredrick.

“Friendly place and friendly people in friendly city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Nice place in former industrial part of town and few minutes walk from downtown. Frederick as a town was built by Hessen german people and thats the reason why he is so European friendly. Visitors center has good services, maps and frindly staff! Toilet include! Parking place also!
There You can choose between histroy exposition from Germans over poetry and nature to Civil war and film about the city... Some post cards and souveniers are here every day.
Dont mis visit this place first in the city! Recommended...
