About Mount Clare Museum House

Minutes from the Inner Harbor, Centuries Away!  This National Historic Landmark is one of the finest examples of a Maryland Georgian country estate, built in 1760 by Charles Carroll, Barrister.  As Baltimore’s oldest house, Mount Clare sits majestically in historic Carroll Park in southwest Baltimore.  Original family furnishings depict the grand style of 18th century colonial living.  The mansion was preserved and furnished by the Maryland Society of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America and became Maryland’s first house museum in 1917.  The Mount Clare Stable was originally built as a stable for the Baltimore City Police Horses in 1910.  The space has been adapted for year round use and available as a rental space and education center.

The museum is open for guided tours on the hour, Thursday through Sunday beginning at 11 AM, last tour at 3 PM.   General Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $4 for students (2-12). 

B&O Railroad Museum members are free.  Free parking.
