Star-Spangled Banner Flag House Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Travel back in time to the early 1800s at the home and work place of Mary Pickersgill, the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House. It’s here that Pickersgill sewed the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key's poem that later became the national anthem of the United States.
Filled with original early 19th-century goods, and many personal family belongings, the house looks much like it did when Pickersgill called it home. In the Jean and Lillian Hofmeister Museum Building next door, visitors can see the original receipt for the Star-Spangled Banner, while the Discovery Gallery for Kids lets little ones learn while having fun with activities like designing your own flag and playing with popular toys from the past.
The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House is located two blocks east of the Inner Harbor on the corner of Pratt and Albemarle streets. The Flag House is open Tuesday through Saturday. Self-guided audio tours are available at any time, and docent-led tours are offered every hour on the hour from 10am to 3pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Allow 30 to 40 minutes for both.
