Stopped by on the way to another destination. A little serpentine through streets to get to, but worth the GPS work. The docent, Dodie, was personable, down-to-earth, very informative, and obviously fully engaged in sharing the details of the house and lives there. Non-flash pictures are welcomed and, although the guided tour (with only my wife and me on it)... More

Located in a park in southwest Baltimore, we almost missed this Colonial Era beauty as we did not see it from the road. So we walked into the park and headed up a knoll as we glimpsed an edifice amidst the trees. There were two staff, a gift shop attendant and our tour guide and we were the only guests.... More

Nestled in a walkable park is this nicely preserved and appointed house of Barrister Carroll. The tour guide was fantastic, enraging and knowledgeable. Good place to learn more about Maryland history and the upper crust lifestyle of days gone by.

We toured this mansion after we walked through the B&O Railroad Museum and took the train up to it from the Museum. You watch a short film before taking the tour, and there are many original artifacts in the mansion which make it extra special. The mansion was originally owned by the Carroll family whose descendants donated some of the... More

You can visit Mount Clare two ways- on it's own or as an add-on to a visit to the B&O Railroad Museum. We visited with our granddaughters on New Year's Eve. When we arrived at the railroad museum we purchased tickets for the train ride to Mount Clare as well as tickets to tour the mansion. Our granddaughters are 5... More

We always enjoy stately homes, since my husband is British and I went to school in Williamsburg, so this was a must see for us. It is a bit of a challenge to locate, but once there, the very knowledgeable docent does a first-rate job explaining all the art and furnishings in a way that puts you in the historical... More

Tour guide was very knowledgeable-she could answer any questions about the house or its contents and make it interesting. Part of the history of Baltimore and Maryland that you don't hear about. Barrister Charles Carrol and his wife lived there in the 18th century. It is one of the oldest examples of colonial Georgian architecture in Baltimore.

Beautiful house, great view. Lots of interesting history inside this house with very in-depth and easy to understand tours. Our docent was very knowledgable about the place and answered all our questions. A must-see for history lovers!

First off, the address on the website is way wrong. GPS asked me to park on 95 south and walk there... The house is located in a park off Washington blvd, no where near the 1500s. Any way, poor staff and assitence including ability to communicate. And lastly, the event I attended was just very mediocre.

This is not must place to visit. Very little of the furnishing; silver; and china are original. Tour was so-so. Hampton Historic Site is orders of magnitude better and is free.
