Some specialize in art, history, and culture or focus on the Chesapeake Bay, a dominant feature of Maryland life and landscape. Others highlight industry, technology, or science. Local historical societies also sometimes house museums.

  • Besides its traditional museums, the State has museums of living-history, such as Historic St. Mary's City in St. Mary's County, and museums with hands-on exhibits. Others, like Hancock's Resolution in Anne Arundel County, offer special programs outside, often in spring and summer, that highlight early American gardens, Native American folkways, or beekeeping. Many historic houses, gardens, and buildings are open to the public year-round or seasonally.
