Banneker-Douglass Museum

Fodor's Review

Named for abolitionist Frederick Douglass and scientist Benjamin Banneker, this former church and its next-door neighbor make up a museum that tells the stories of African-Americans in Maryland through performances, lectures, educational programs, and both permanent and changing exhibits. Audio and visual presentations and hands-on exhibits make the museum engaging for kids, while also bringing home the hardships of slave life.
