This is the place where the flag that flew over Ft. McHenry was made. Lots of history here.

Have to see if visiting Baltimore. I have visited many times and it is always a good moment to hear about the flag and our National Anthem.

What this museum offers isn't bad, it just isn't enough to justify the entry fee. I thought I was in the entry lobby of the museum, only to discover it was actually the whole museum. Definitely not worth the entry fee.

We visited this museum on september 6th. It has a little museum, a film and they show you the house. We got a guided tour of the house. If you visit this museum, you have to visit Fort McHenry so you can see where the flag was hoisted.
