Living History
Baltimore’s museums, monuments and
historic ships offer a behind-the-scenes tour of
American history. And museums like the Reginald F. Lewis Museum and the National Great Blacks In Wax Museum shine a spotlight on Maryland’s African American heritage. Take a selfie at the original Washington Monument, tour Oriole Park at Camden Yards, or step back in time at the B&O Railroad Museum.
Innovator Hot Spot
Baltimore is a business incubator and transformer— leading industries like cybersecurity, medical and biotechnology. Plus, a new generation of innovators is rekindling Baltimore’s proud tradition of inventing, making and manufacturing. Check out Betamore, a co-working incubator; tour the Sagamore Spirit Distillery; or find fresh perspectives at Motor House.
“One of the MOST INSPIRING ART CITIES IN AMERICA.” — Departures Magazine
Visit Baltimore’s Services team has been recognized with countless awards. They work seamlessly with the Baltimore Convention Center and hotel partners to streamline communications and
the planning process, which gives you more time to focus on the program. The team is also tied into a network of businesses, universities and other organizations. Convention services can help secure private dining, immersive experiences — like a flag-raising ceremony at Fort McHenry for your group — or help you pick the perfect offsite venue for large events.
Art Scene
Baltimore’s cultural scene fuses traditional
art with DIY flavor. Fans of Matisse and
Broadway will find plenty to rave about, but
our cultural districts also serve up intimate
performance venues, unconventional pieces
and yearly festivals that transform the downtown
streets. From the seven-mile-long waterfront promenade to arts districts like Station North where you’ll find art and entertainment options around every corner, Baltimore’s cultural energy is thriving. 29
