Established in 1844, the Maryland Center for History and Culture is the state’s oldest continuously operating cultural institution. It’s the premier attraction for state history. Plus, it boasts an extensive collection of over 35,000 objects and seven million books and documents. If you would like to step back in time, the museum offers plenty of virtual fun.

Throughout the fall season, all events at the museum will be held virtually. Best of all, the events are free to attend! So, you can check the calendar for upcoming events to attend live, or you can watch recordings of past events. Check out Two Sides of the Redline, which explores the impact of redlining on the Black community.
The museum also has an extensive digital catalog of its art and artifacts. You can search by date, subject, artist, or genre, or you can browse the collection to learn about important items such as early work by Pamela Vinton Ravenel. Look for Hats I Hated or Loved and other sketches by this well-respected early southern artist.
