About Mount Clare Museum
Mount Clare, the 1760 Georgian summer home built by Charles Carroll, Barrister.  Established as Maryland’s first house museum in 1917, it is the oldest house in Baltimore City and is located in historic Carroll Park, West Baltimore.  Original furnishings of the Barrister, his wife, Margaret Tilghman Carroll, and their heirs have been preserved in the house and provide an accurate interpretation of the grand style of 18th century colonial living.  This exceptional collection provides a remarkably personal interpretation of life at Mount Clare – a rare treat for house museum visitors. 

The museum is open for guided tours on the hour, Thursday through Sunday beginning at 11 o’clock, last tour at 3 o’clock. Free parking.  For more information, or group tour reservations, please call 410.837.3262 or visit www.mountclare.org.
