Museum of Frederick County History

Length: 30 or 60 minutes | Guided or Self-Guided Tour

Frederick County has a rich history for visitors to explore. The museum is set in a 1820’s historic mansion that for much of its history served as a girls’ orphanage. The museum provides a new perspective on the history of mid-Maryland and the nation, from the Colonial period, through the Civil War, to the Cold War era.  It features rotating exhibitions that highlight various stories of Frederick County’s past through its vast museum collections and loans from private collectors.
