My husband and I had an exceptional tour yesterday at Hammond-Harwood House. The history of the architecture, the people, the state of Maryland, the city of Annapolis all rolled into one. We would definitely visit here again as there's so much to look at. We took the one hour tour, which lasted longer as we had so many questions. The cute gift shop has really good prices on their products.

Elva was our guide - completely delightful, well informed, and very fun. It was steamy day so she kept us moving when we went outdoors.

We had a wonderful tour of the Hammond-Harwood House, by a docent who obviously loved history, and was eager to share what she knew about this historic structure. The interior of the house is full of the most exquisite furnishings. The architectural details were impressive. Just wish we could have used our cameras, as we are
avid photographers. The Hammond-Harwood House is an easy walk from the harbor, and there are several other
historic sights nearby. Highly recommend that you visit the Hammond-Harwood House when visiting Annapolis.

We checked the website for times of opening and it indicated it was open. Arrived to find a sign “closed for season.” HELLO out there - update your website if you close for a prolonged period of time!!! Not an easy hike for the elderly.

Taking the in depth guided tour which spoke about the house, origins and each individual room. The guide was very knowledgeable and took her time talking with us. To schedule this tour you need to call ahead, but you will gain much more knowledge then a self guided tour!!

The only way to see the inside is with a guided tour. The antiques are very well preserved. The architecture was very unique for its time because of the angles and location of the kitchen. Our Docent, Paul Murphy, was very knowledgeable and shares his enjoyment of history.

Very informative hour long tour of this historic colonial house. Our docent, Paul, was very knowledgeable and did a nice job at explaining the history of the house and locals of the time. The house was very well decorated and in excellent condition throughout.
