Students under 18 are invited to enjoy free admission to the museum at the Maryland Center for History and Culture all summer long - June through August. Thought-provoking exhibitions bring history to life using objects, artwork, and documents that engage young visitors in the stories of events and people who have shaped Maryland and America over time, including the new "Discover Maryland" exhibition.
Summertime in Maryland means scorching heat and high humidity. What better way to cool off than to experience winter in July by visiting the Maryland Center for History and Culture’s newest exhibition: Losing Winter? From noon to 3 PM, meet featured artist Lynn Cazabon and MCHC Curator of Film & Photographs Joe Tropea in the gallery to learn more about the making of the exhibition. In the courtyard, watch a live ice sculpture carving and enjoy refreshing snowballs/ice cream from Kona Ice (1-2 PM only).
Who are Marylanders, why are they so obsessed with their flag, and what does duckpin bowling have to do with the Baltimore Orioles? This exhibition explores how Maryland and its people have changed since its founding in 1634. Learn how the dynamic geography of the state drove its industry, population, and the identity of Marylanders, and how the arts and culture of Maryland reflect on its past. For traveling visitors and lifelong Marylanders, Discover Maryland shows there is much to uncover about Maryland. Open through March 2022.
