A must-see! This regional cultural center includes galleries, seven acres of gardens, the Glen Burnie House, a Museum Store, and a Makerspace Studio. Galleries display changing exhibitions and Shenandoah Valley decorative arts, 18th– and 19th-century European and American fine art, and a fascinating collection of miniature houses and rooms. The landscape surrounding the house includes rose, statue, vegetable, Asian, and perennial gardens. Inside the house, explore the stories of those who lived in Glen Burnie from 1796 to 1992. Light snacks and refreshments are available in the Museum Store. Picnics welcome.
