Well worth the trip and it was free. Learned a lot about the town and life between Baltimore and Washington. Staff especially friendly. Check on line for hours.

Have gone several times and loved it every time. Have different displays at certain times. They also sponsor a holiday house tour every other year that is just amazing and so much fun

While visiting here, talk to the hosts. They are so informed and charming. If you're not afraid to engage them, which they love, you will very much enjoy your visit here.

This is one of those "cool little places" in the area that add so much charm to a visit here. The Historians are very interesting and proud of the History behind Laurel.

Withall of the urban blight in the Washington-Baltimore Corridor we forget the history before subways and subdivisions. Great photo archive

I am a docent at the Laurel Museum. There are facts and exhibits about Laurel during the civil war. The museum is located in an old mill workers stone house. Laurel was a mill town and this house housed four families. There is also a film about Laurel through the years and a small gift shop.

If you like small quaint museums, you might want to visit the Laurel Museum in Laurel, Maryland. The museum is located in a 3-floor house that was used by mill worker families who worked at the cotton mill (now demolished and gone). The basement of the house is where the families would have had their kitchens. The museum shows what... More
