I love this museum. It's a great size (not too big, not too small) and has a varied collection that spans from ancient times to the 19th century. Well worth visiting if you're in Mt. Vernon.

This little gem in Baltimore is absolutely phenomenal. They have a rich art collection and historic artifacts that date back to Bezantynia. Just fantastic. A big plus is that it's free admission as well.
