It’s a small building on the edge of Little Italy. But if you appreciate history and want to spend sometime reading, this is a great place to do so. <30 mins to an hour.

The museum tells the story of Baltimore in the Civil War - where the Civil War actually began and where President Lincoln arrived secretly to evade capture. The guides (especially Paul) are very informative.
