Fodor's Virginia and Maryland
Local and national artists exhibit in the galleries and jazz, chamber, folk, and popular musicians perform year-round at this mansion built around 1900. Whimsical pieces, part of the permanent collection, are on display in the sculpture garden. A Wednesday evening concert series features local musicians for $12. The 1,976-seat Music Centre, home to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in Montgomery County, opened in 2005. Strathmore's Tea is served in a well-lighted wood-panel salon Tuesday and Wednesday at 1 (reservations essential). On Wednesday evenings in summer, concertgoers spread out on the expansive lawn to listen to free concerts—everything from Ukelele to Afrofunk.
