Stroll through Baltimore's cobblestone streets as we experience life in the 19th century. Sit on a stoop and have a conversation with your Victorian neighbors and open the newspaper to read all about riding the rails and sailing on steamships. Share your stories using a printing press and send a secret message using Morse Code, play in our 5th annual early childhood area, and enjoy captivating performances all day long!  Strap on your suspenders as we create Victorian art together! High School students who participated in New Eyes on America: Student Response will be honored. Visit the special exhibition, New Eyes on America: The Genius of Richard Caton Woodville, for FREE today!
