Maryland Multicultural City and State Resources

In Maryland, stories of people from every background and culture are told at the state’s museums, parks and trails. 

The Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore, for example, tells the story of Native Americans who called Maryland home long before Europeans arrived in the 16th century. The Harriet Tubman Museum and Educational Center on Maryland’s Eastern Shore celebrates the amazing woman who repeatedly risked her life to guide American slaves to freedom. 

There are many places one can visit to explore and celebrate one's heritage in Baltimore and throughout Maryland. Find out more at the Maryland Office of Tourism Development; call 800-MDWELCOME or visit www.maryland.org to view itineraries, travel guides and special packages, or contact one of the city and state resources below.
