Once in town, I added cards from the American Visionary Art Museum, the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, the B&O Railroad Museum, and the National Aquarium. When my ladyfriend and I started getting serious, I added her on a family membership to the Lewis Museum—because I know romance. When she got me a membership to the Baltimore Museum of Industry for my birthday last year, I knew this was the real deal.
