This is a beautiful, wonderfully preserved home, filled with warmth and the feeling of lives lived well. The staff in the gift shop were very friendly and helpful. I want to go back again when I make it back to Baltimore!

Built between 1801 and 1806, this home of the son of the longest living signer of the Declaration of Independence, Charles Carroll of Carrollton, is not to be missed if you enjoy architecture of that era. It is handsomely furnished, with period pieces and a few pieces owned by the family. Because it was owned only by the Carrolls and... More

The house tour was excellent in showing the developmental of style of housing in Baltimore and the connection to famous founding Carroll family. There is Free Parking which was a great plus.

This is a beautiful house museum on the Johns Hopkins campus. The house has been fully restored and beautifully furnished. Our docent was knowledgeable. The home and its owners had a fascinating history. well worth a visit

I stumbled upon this museum as some friends and I were walking through the JHU campus on a self-guided tour. We came inside the museum to ask for a map of the campus. The curators gave us the map but asked if we wanted a short tour of the Homewood Museum. Not knowing what the Homewood Museum was, we at... More

We came here with small children and while the place is awesome, it could do something to invite more kids. The house was allowed to be toured on one's own and the tour was very long. It is a superb place for adults, but less so for younger kids. They just lose interest - and the answer could be, then... More

The tour of this beautiful old home is a great way to spend an hour or two on the Johns Hopkins campus. There is a 7-8$ admission fee, but the docent led us through all the rooms and was good at answering all questions. There is also a small but reasonable and attractive gift shop.

I visited the Homewood museum in September 2013. The museum is located on the campus of John Hopkins university. The staff there is extremely nice and very knowledgeable. The house has been restored to the period when Charles Carrol II lived there. Unfortunately, not much of the original furniture remains in the house but that is due to the tragic... More

I was fortunate to have a private docent tour of this beautifully and lovingly restored home on the grounds of the present-day Johns Hopkins University campus. All tours must be with a docent and I was privileged to be the only visitor at that time on a very hot July day. The home is air-conditioned for touring comfort. I would... More

This weekend we visited Homewood museum. It was a very interesting and informative trip. The house is tastefully decorated according to the stile of prominent Baltimorian families of nineteen's century. There are many ineresting subjects to see. Our giude (named Claurence) did outstanding job introducing us to society life of those times. I strongly recomend visiting this museum if you... More
