You are invited to explore Baltimore’s Colonial past through the eyes of the Charles Carroll, Barrister and family at Mount Clare  Museum House. 

Students will be divided into small groups and guided through Mount Clare Museum House by a docent in period clothing. Students step back into the 18th century to view portraits of the people who lived at Mount Clare as well as see their furniture, china and silver displayed throughout the house.


An intimate tour will allow students to discuss the differences and similarities between life in the colonies and life now.  Students will be exposed to many objects unique to colonial 18th century living.

All tours are designed to address the Maryland State Social Studies curriculum.
