Four Maryland Museums That Turn “Museum” On Its Head

By Alpert Schreyer on May 28, 2014

Maryland MuseumsMost people either love or hate museums.  For some, they’re an adventure into a world you never imagined; for others, they’re a deadly bore on par with memorizing multiplication tables or watching paint dry.

For families with both kinds of museum-goers in their ranks, including museums on the list of Summer Fun in Maryland can be tough.  Even those who love museums can visit the state’s famous art galleries and historical collections only so many times before looking for other summer fun.

To shake up your summer, consider these four Maryland museums that are decidedly “off the beaten path”:

Museum of unNatural History

The Museum of unNatural History isn’t a museum in and of itself – it’s a part of the Maryland Renaissance Festival, and as such, it’s only around on the weekends from late August through October. The Festival itself is typically held on Crownsville Road in Annapolis, and the Museum itself offers specimens of mythical creatures. If your kids have always wanted to see a unicorn, here’s your chance!

National Cryptologic Museum

Secret codes and spy stories are perennial favorites among kids and adults alike.  At the National Cryptologic Museum on Colony Seven Road in Annapolis Junction, Maryland, visitors can learn about code-making and code-breaking, as well as take a peek at how these skills have been vital to our national defense throughout history.

The Decoy Museum

Havre de Grace, Maryland promotes itself as the “Decoy Capital of the World,” so it’s no surprise that the town is home to the Decoy Museum. Check out carved decoys of ducks and other fowl and learn how hunters have crafted and used them throughout the centuries. Part art, part hunting, and part history – what’s not to love?

American Visionary Art Museum

It’s true: all art museums claim the works they contain are “visionary.” But the American Visionary Art Museum, located on Key Highway in Baltimore, specializes in artworks created by artists who aren’t formally trained – who are working directly from the “creative vision,” so to speak.  The results range from the inspiring to the bizarre.

To top off your day at the museum, consider dropping by the Maryland Science Center and/or the Baltimore Museum of Industry – they’re both just a few blocks away.
