Homewood House Museum 2/16/2006

If the Homewood House Museum were any closer to where I lived for four years, it would have bit me. Yet, why did it take four years for me, a museum junkie, to walk through its front door? Well, the short of it is that while the museum is interesting and contains some great material culture, it lacks an identity. I used to joke that this museum was like a vacuum; once you're in and starting a tour, the docents are so happy to have you that they make it impossible to let you go. I remember making up an excuse that I had an afternoon class just so I could get away from the docents. It's a catch-22 if you ask me; lack of crowds make the employees and volunteers a bit too eager for the few that do decide to drop in. It's not exactly a new story for historical houses, but this historian thinks that she will spend her afternoon somewhere else. more

Homewood House Museum 8/21/2005

The Homewood House was a wedding present to the son and daughter-in-law of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, one of the Maryland signers of the Declaration of Independence. Today the house serves as an example of early 19th century neo-classical architecture. The house is used for exhibitions, lectures, and special events. It is open for tours so visitors can see the lifestyle of a family in the early 19th century. more

Only if You are Really Bored 8/15/2005

This museum isn't terrible, but it isn't exactly exciting either. This is great for Moms and Dads who want to know more about the university they want to send their kids to. There's a store so you can pick up a few items for them to tote around their high school with. I visited the Museum during my freshman year and it was okay. My friends and I were really bored so we stopped in because we were curious and had never bothered to go inside before. Still, every person who is interested in Hopkins really should visit at least once. more
