Additional Attractions: Baltimore, MD
 
Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum
Following the collapse of its roundhouse roof in a snowstorm, the B&O Railroad Museum might have remained closed forever, but through perseverance and hard work, the museum both reopened and offered many improvements. The beautiful roundhouse is thoroughly renovated and showcases a variety of interactive exhibits as well as a number of historic engines and fascinating railroad equipment. A “must see” for railroad buffs, the museum was the first of its kind admitted to the Smithsonian Affiliates program. Souvenirs, videos, books, and clothing are available at the gift shop.
 
Baltimore Basilica
The Baltimore Basilica was formerly the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and was the first Roman Catholic cathedral built in the United States; construction lasted from 1806–1821. The Basilica is an impressive architectural masterpiece and is a National Historic Landmark.
 
Baltimore Museum of Art
The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) is home to 90,000 works of art and the Walters Art Museum. Admission to both museums has been free since 2006 as a result of grants by Baltimore City and Baltimore County. BMA has an extensive and impressive collection of American art dating back to the colonial period. It also is one of the first museums in the country to display exhibits of African American artists.
 
Fells Point
Fells Point is a historic waterfront neighborhood located along the north shore of the Baltimore Harbor and the Northwest Branch of the Patapsco River. Named for the Englishmen who founded a ship-building company in 1726 that would go on to produce the famous “Baltimore Schooners,” Fells Point is a spirited waterfront community in perpetual celebration of Baltimore’s British nautical roots. The neighborhood’s visage has remained largely unchanged since its founding and attracts many visitors.
 
Maryland Science Center
Located a few blocks from the Inner Harbor, the Science Center offers interactive educational displays within its three floors of exhibits. This attraction’s best and most popular exhibits include Outer Space Place, where the Hubble Space Telescope National Visitor Center and Space Link are housed; DinoQuest; the IMAX Theater; and the Davis Planetarium.
 
National Aquarium
The National Aquarium in Baltimore, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures, is Maryland’s number one tourist attraction. Visitors will feel as though they are part of the resident sharks’ habitat as they walk inside the donut-shaped shark tank. Dolphin presentations always draw a crowd at the Marine Mammal Pavilion.
