Evergreen House & Museum has to be one of the most under-rated attractions (for adults!) that Baltimore has to offer. Tours leave on the hour (you must be on a tour -- can't wander the house on your own), and can last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on how many questions you ask your...

In all the years that my daughter attended Loyola University, we never went next door to see the Evergreen Museum. We recently visited since she is now an alumni and we were so thrilled with this beautiful little museum. It sits atop a high hill as a beautiful mansion. We went when the house was decorated for Christmas and it... More

A mansion with a personality. Parquet floors, tiffany lights, antique pottery, and a private theatre stage. The house used to have a bowling alley. The highlight for me was the library with a view of the tiered gardens. An eclectic collection awaits. A fun and interesting hour and a half. They have a gift shop. Staff very nicely allowed us...

Fun venue for a party in the carriage house. Best in the spring because I'm not sure if they have airconditioning.

This lovely home once belonged to a prominent Baltimore family who collected many things -- Japanese netsuke, paintings, and books. The library is a bibliophile's dream. It is absolutely beautiful. They also built a theater in the house which is stunning... and there is a bathroom made of gold... also, they often use the outside grounds for displaying contemporary sculpture...... More

We were passing through Baltimore and had a couple of hours to kill - so based on the AAA Guidebooks "Gem" designation, plus we generally enjoy touring historic and well-preserved homes, we stopped at the Evergreen Museum. Well worth the $7.00 (AAA discount) admission; beautiful historic home in a neighborhood filled with other well-preserved homes. The art collections inside are... More

Love this little known place - and it is such a treasure. I don't want to give it all away, but this is a very interesting place to tour, and you will learn a lot about Baltimore early history.

Underrated and almost unknown, even to locals, this is a great place to visit both because of the museum itself and the amazing book collection.

We had no idea this place existed, but found it on a list of things to do in Baltimore. What a great find! It's fascinating to see the gorgeous architecture, amazing artwork and beautiful furnishings. Our children, 9 and 11, just loved it with all the staircases, seemingly endless number of rooms, and a library to die for. The bathroom... More
