    Default Museum lists???

    Hi fellow homeschoolers! I was thinking that we could start a list of museums in the state of Maryland to help with the planning of field trips. Children really do like them and so do adults. Many are free or low cost, some even have special days for school groups and that could be interpreted as homeschool groups also.
    I'm going to start a list but would absolutely love it if you would please add your favorite museums or comment on the ones that I list.
    Remember, information is a good thing.

    How about those historic homes??
    The Beall-Dawson Historic House Museum An 1815 Federalist style home designed to showcase the owner's wealth and standing in the community. Includes interpretations of life in the early 19th century.
    Billingsly House Museum A 1740 brick colonial plantation home on 430 acres. One of the oldest structures in the county. Open tours on limited days.
    Geddes Piper House 1784 Federalist style house. Was lived in until 1910, later went through several changes including a kindergarten and an apartment building before being lovingly restored.
    Mount Harmon Plantation A beautifully restored 18th century plantaion/maor house, and colonial kitchen on 200 acres.

    I'm sure this is not all, just a few to get your started. Please, please feel free to add any that you know of.

    I found this wonderful website with Maryland museums sorted by counties. I wish the website had a list of the museums sorted by category but I don't mind doing extra work. Just thought I should share! Enjoy!

    I took my boys, ages 12 & 14 to the National Electronics Museum (History of the Nation's Defense Electronics) and they really enjoyed it. It's $5.00 for adults and $1.00 for students. It's in Anne Arundel County, Linthicum, on Nursery Road (near BWI airport).
