This was the first Baltimore attraction we visited and it was a great introduction to all aspects of the city's history. It really helped set some historical context for the rest of our explorations of Baltimore. The exhibits are very hands-on which got the children very engaged particularly with the history of shipbuilding. As non-Americans it was also a great... More

Built on the historic site of the first African-American shipyard. In a series of restored warehouses, this is a great museum with a great message - both diversity and preserving the maritime environment.

Our Washington, DC History & Culture Meetup group visited this off-the-beaten-path museum that is fun on many levels. First the overall interior architecture of the building is very impressive with pretty views of the harbor. Second it's interesting learning about the lives of both Frederick Douglass, whom I already knew quite a bit about but still learned a lot more,... More

I was very interested to learn more about Frederick Douglass and had never heard of Isaac Meyers so we decided to go here after learning that the bigger black history museum is closed on Tuesdays. This museum only takes exact cash which was a little... More

My nieces wedding was held at the museum this past weekend. A very unique and beautiful place for a wedding! The view was awesome, the building it's self was fabulous. My only complaint was the air-conditioning, it was not evenly distributed. The main room was extremely warm, yet the other rooms up stairs were nicely cooled?

As two older white folks, we lucked into this fascinating small museum with character! In a lovely building full of light, the history of two men who worked and lived in Baltimore came to light. We were met by an enthusiastic tour guide who clearly loves her job and we saw others during our stay. The museum is carefully put... More
