Baltimore immigration Museum
Open from 1-4 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
BCHS Board Member Nick Fessenden and Advisory Committee Member Brigitte Fessenden are part of the group that founded the Baltimore Immigration Museum.
After years of searching for a location for their exhibits, the Baltimore Immigration Memorial, Inc. organization partnered with the Locust Point Community Church UCC, to establish a museum in the church-owned Immigration House. This building was built in 1904 for newly arrived European immigrants who needed temporary housing before moving on to their final destinations or finding work and permanent housing in Baltimore.
The museum is free, but donations are welcome to help with upkeep and maintenance, as well as with future exhibits and educational programs.
