Trace the path of history through Baltimore

Baltimore’s story is essential to learning about the influential people and significant moments that shaped American history and the African American experience. Explore historic sites like Fort McHenry, birthplace of the national anthem, Edgar Allan Poe’s home-turned-museum, the Washington Monument (built before the one in D.C.!) and historic ships, including the USS Constellation, the last remaining sail-only warship commissioned by the U.S. Navy. And the best way to see it all is with a guided tour.
