Multicultural

Baltimore’s neighborhoods reflect a tapestry of cultures from around the world. A walk through Little Italy and Greektown reveals delicious old-world cuisine. Jewish culture and history are celebrated and preserved through rare books, oral histories, and fine art at the Jewish Museum of Maryland. At the Irish Shrine and Railroad Workers Museum, hear stories of the brave Irish-Americans who migrated to Baltimore in the late 1840s to escape the “Great Hunger” in Ireland.

Journey through centuries of African American culture, and learn of the great Americans who called Baltimore home, from the nation’s first African American Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall, and revered abolitionist Frederick Douglass, to musical pioneers like Eubie Blake and Cab Calloway. Find out more about the city’s multicultural history and offerings.
